British Values

British Values

At Preston, we educate our children in a number of key areas of British Values:

  • Rule of law
  • Democracy
  • Tolerance of different faith and beliefs
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect


Rule of Law

Our children understand the principles of rules and what they set out to achieve.  They follow our school rules on behaviour both in and out of the classroom, and learn to articulate their thoughts and opinions. 


One way we achieve this is through our Year 6 Mock Trial at Perrot Hill School; this event takes place annually during the Autumn term. The event offers our KS2 children the opportunity to debate and formulate justified reasons for verdicts using the British legal system as a means to do this.

We ensure all children understand the principles of democracy and the process this follows.  Throughout the year, our children received visits from a range of local official including the Major of Yeovil and Local MP, Marcus Fysh.


In Year 5, children study democracy in detail during British Parliment Week where they  learn out the House of Commons and Parliment.  As part of this, they engage in an official ballot and learn more about the process of democracy both nationally and locally.



Our School Council are a key part of our 'Pupil Voice'. They meet regularly with their class and senior leaders to ensure that children's voices are heard and valued.  At the start of the year, new School Councillors are elected through means of a democratic vote.

Tolerance of faiths/beliefs

From EYFS to Year 6, we develop out children's cultural capital through educating them about different faiths and beliefs.  We share stories, welcome visitors and go on trips to develop children's understanding of the world around them.  One example of this is World Religion Day.



Children brought in special objects relating to their faith and beliefs.


Individual liberty

We provide all children the opportunity to choose and become independent learners.  this takes many forms including: After school clubs, activities at playtimes, curriculum opportunities and future career visits.

Mutual Respect

Children learn to work together, play together to grow together.  We ensure we provide all children with a diverse and balanced curriculum to prepare them for the next stage of their learning.
