Misterton Primary and Nursery School

“Learning together, Achieving together”

British Values

At Misterton Primary and Nursery School we actively teach our children about Fundamental British Values. We do this through our whole school curriculum, including PSHCE/ RSHE, assemblies and what we do in the daily life in school. By promoting British Values in school we ensure young people leave our school prepared for life in modern Britain. Staff are supported by Subject Leaders and also the KAPOW resource. The Schools recent Wellbeing Award for Schools supports and directs the drive for our work in British Values.

The Key British Values are:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and belief
