British Values Assemblies can get you “One Step Ahead of OFSTED”
You can demonstrate delivery of British Values in your school by developing British Values Assemblies using our Values Assemblies materials. Download our Values Grid and Values Calendar now and create your plan for the delivery of British Values, before OFSTED appear.
Why You Need to be Proactive
Almost a dozen schools – including many in rural areas – have been criticised for failing to prepare pupils for “life in Britain” following a series of snap inspections by Ofsted. The education regulator found 11 state schools were leaving pupils at risk of marginalisation after refusing to give them access to a “broad and balanced” curriculum. In a series of reports, it was claimed that schools were failing to promote understanding of various faiths or “tolerance of communities different to their own”. Those criticised included schools in Wiltshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire, Suffolk, Hampshire and Kent.
A school in Wiltshire did “not go far enough in making pupils aware of the rich diversity of life in modern Britain”, said Ofsted.
One in Kent with a predominately white intake was failing ensure “people’s differences are sufficiently valued and respected”.
How to Avoid Criticism From OFSTED
The DfE has defined what is meant by British Values so at least we know what OFSTED will be looking for.
You can demonstrate delivery of British Values in your school by using our Values Assemblies.
