Your school's responsibilities
Schools are required to promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of their pupils. As part of this, your school should actively promote the fundamental British values of:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
This is set out in the Department for Education's (DfE's) guidance on promoting British values as part of SMSC in maintained schools and part 2 of The Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 for academies and independent schools.
You can read more about this in our article on the requirement to promote British values in schools.
