British Values aForsbrook Primary School

At Forsbrook CE Primary School we take very seriously our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain. We value the ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate and explore these alongside other cultures in our country.

We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts. Our cross curricular approach provides excellent opportunities to deepen and develop understanding developing the spiritual, moral, social and cultural education of our children.


The school makes considerable efforts to ensure children have exposure to a wide experience beyond their local community during which these concepts are shown, through for example, sporting events, a range of visits and use of outdoor education centres. Their strong rooted values-based understanding gives them an excellent platform for embracing difference.

At Forsbrook, we value the voice of the child and promote democratic processes such as our school council whose members are voted for by the children. Ideas and events are planned and discussed with a chance for  debate and putting forward points of view.

Children are given roles and responsibilities so that they are fully involved in all aspects of school life. For instance, our older children are play leaders and help to promote our core values. We expect all our children to be good role models for each  other, which is encouraged through high expectations of behaviour

How we show British Values...

On Thursday 12th December 2019 the children of Forsbrook Primary School voted in an election with the country. They learnt about three party manifestos; Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrats. Year Six house captains and vice captains led the party manifesto discussions and at lunch time the children voted. Children loved learning about the different party manifestos and  a real election buzz swept the school. The results were as followed: Labour with 13 votes, Conservatives with 35 votes and Liberal Democrats with 35 votes... A coalition was voted for by the children of Forsbrook!
