British Values

Austhorpe Primary School Copyright 2022 (64)

Austhorpe Primary School is committed to serving its community and surrounding areas. We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith nature of the United Kingdom and understand the crucial role our school plays in promoting these values.

We encourage admissions from all those entitled to education under British law regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status. We are a school for all.

This statement outlines the key British values we actively promote.


  • Children are involved in Democratic processes e.g. voting for school councillors and shared rewards.
  • The school council itself adheres to democratic processes, reporting its actions to the Governing Body.
  • We have links with civic figures who come into school to educate the children about upholding British law and the democratic process.

Rule of Law

  • School has links with the local police
  • We have links with the Local Authority which involves Police, Fire and Drugs services.
  • We have a clearly structured behaviour policy which all stakeholders understand and follow.
  • We regularly review behaviour incidents in school and share these with key stakeholders.
  • Assemblies are delivered with a focus on the law e.g. Scottish Independence.
