British Values at Larkrise School At Larkrise School, we actively promote British Values, as defined under the Ofsted guidance 2014, through our school vision, ethos, agreed rules, curriculum and teaching: Schools should promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs Actively promoting the values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. At Larkrise School, we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this is a strong shared ethos. We actively challenge children, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.
