All schools now have a duty to ‘actively promote’ the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; both in lessons and extracurricular activities. Ofsted and the independent inspectorates now take the work of schools in this area into account during inspections.

But, how do we define British values? How can these be effectively embedded in the school? And how will schools be assessed?  Ofsted wants to see a school ethos and climate that promotes British values at every level through SMSC, the curriculum and leadership.  Schools must now have a clear strategy for embedding these values and show how their work with pupils has been effective in doing so.

This half day event has been designed to provide guidance on how schools can meet these new requirements as well as the new statutory requirements around radicalisation.
