Your school's duties
Schools are required to promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of their pupils. As part of this, your school should actively promote the fundamental British values of:

• Democracy
• The rule of law
• Individual liberty
• Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

This is set out in the Department for Education's (DfE's) guidance on promoting British values as part of SMSC in maintained schools and part 2 of The Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 for academies and independent schools.

Knowledge and understanding expected of pupils
As a result of your school's promotion of British values, pupils are expected to gain:

• An understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
• An appreciation that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety
• An understanding that there is a separation of power between the executive and the judiciary, and that while some public bodies such as the police and the army can be held to account through Parliament, others such as the courts maintain independence
• An understanding that the freedom to choose and hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
• An acceptance that other people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour
• An understanding of the importance of identifying and combating discrimination

This is outlined in pages 5 and 6 of the DfE guidance for maintained schools, and pages 6 and 7 of the DfE's advice for academies and independent schools.

What Ofsted looks at with regard to British values
Ofsted will consider how well pupils understand British values when evaluating personal development in your school. This is set out in paragraphs 293, 302 and 304 of the School Inspection Handbook.

They'll want to see your school developing and deepening pupils' understanding of the British values through all areas of school life, including:

• The curriculum
• Visits
• Discussion & Literature

Pupils' understanding of British values forms part of the grade descriptors Ofsted will use to grade personal development in your school (paragraphs 414 and 415).

How your school can promote British values
The DfE suggests the following actions on page 6 of the guidance:

• Include age-appropriate material in the curriculum on the strengths, advantages and disadvantages of democracy, and how democracy and the law works in Britain in comparison to other forms of government in other countries
• Make sure that all pupils within the school have a voice that is listened to
• Demonstrate how democracy works through actively promoting democratic processes, such as a pupil-elected school council
• Organise visits to local councils, Parliament and places of worship, and encourage contact with those in political or local office
• Use opportunities such as general or local elections to hold mock elections to teach pupils how to argue and defend points of view
• Use teaching resources from a wide variety of sources to help pupils understand a range of faiths
• Consider the role of extra-curricular activities, including any run directly by pupils, in promoting fundamental British values

Your responsibilities
As a board, you should make sure that the fundamental British values are reflected in your school's ethos and implemented effectively in your school's policy and practice.

You'll need to monitor the promotion of British values in your school. Find questions to help you do this.

You must take "swift action" to suspend anyone from office that acts to undermine these values. This may include considering whether to remove an individual from office if they act in this manner.

This is outlined in sections 2.2 and 4.1.2 of the Governance Handbook.

Examples of practice in schools
Nether Kellet Primary School has outlined the importance of rights and responsibilities within its behaviour policy (select this from the list)
Westacre Middle School reinforces the fundamental British values by holding school council elections, arranging visits from the police and fire service, and implementing an anti-bullying culture
Washingborough Academy delivers 'values education' which reflect the fundamental British values. Its values based curriculum is based around 22 core values that are explicitly taught over a 2-year period
Queen Elizabeth High School promotes British values through its student council, assemblies, and by participating in Global Education Day
