British Values

British Values at Barlby High School


Since 2014, the Department for Education (DfE) has required schools to promote British Values and to ensure they are taught in schools.
Barlby High School is committed to serving its community and recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
It follows equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.
Barlby High School is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British Values to all its students.

How we promote these values at Barlby High School

  • Challenging pupils, staff or parents who express opinions contrary to British Values
  • Modelling values through what we say and do
  • Teaching British Values explicitly and implicitly through our curriculum and our form-time/assembly programme
The five key British Values are:
