British Values

The government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, encompassing values of:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect
  • Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs



Schools have always promoted British Values. Whilst the Prevent Strategy defined specific values, the following documents have always enabled schools to develop them for their communities:

  • The Human Rights Act 1998
  • The Data Protection Act 1998
  • Freedom of Information Act 2000
  • The Equality Act 2010
