British Values

At Kestrels' Field Primary School we uphold and teach pupils about British Values which are defined as:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.

These values are taught explicitly through Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE), Religious Education (RE) and our assemblies.   

How do we incorporate the fundamental values into the work we do at our school?

Below are some of the children's quotes when asked 'What does British Values' mean to you? Their answers have come from assemblies and lessons on the different fundamental British values. 



 "It means you shouldn't bully people for having different faiths or beliefs to your own."

- Arjun, Class 11


 "You should show respect to everybody at all times."

- Amaan, Class 10


 "You shouldn't hurt other children on the playground and you should treat others how you want to be treated." 

- Ethan, Class 9






Growth Mindset

Across our school we encourage the children to have a growth mind set. This means that the children are encouraged to have an open mind, particularly if they are struggling with something. By doing this they are able to look at problems and difficulties as something that can be positive and beneficial to them.

Each week we introduce a new growth mind set quote, with the purpose of encouraging the children in their learning. This quote is then discussed throughout the classroom assembly and displayed at the front of the classroom for the entire week for both the teacher and children to refer back to.
