FUNDAMENTAL BRITISH VALUES

As part of the ‘Prevent’ strategy set out by our government in 2011, Complete Training and Assessment will be actively promoting Fundamental British Values to echo life in modern Britain. The values are Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of different cultures and religions. Educational settings were required to ‘respect’ these values, however, a result of changes mean that we must now show a clear strategy for embedding these values. Ofsted now take the work of educational settings in this area into account during inspections. 

Fundamental British values give an understanding of what it means to be a citizen in an ever-evolving UK. These values, if shared and respected, allow everyone in a community to feel safe, empowering each culture to thrive and contribute to a modern and diverse Great Britain. 

These Values will be embedded in all aspects of learning through Complete Training and will be promoted by our staff members. 

Examples of the understanding and knowledge pupils are expected to learn include:

  • an understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process

  • an understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law

  • an acceptance that people having different faiths or beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour

  • an understanding of the importance of identifying and combatting discrimination
