British Values

British Values in English

Here at Hollinsclough CE Academy, we strive to provide opportunities for pupils to develop their own core values whilst instilling the Fundamental British Values in many opportunities within units of work. Here are some examples of how we consolidate our pupils’ understanding of British Values hand in hand with our own English curriculum:

  • Democracy: 
    Pupils will learn about democracy through the choice of English literature used, and during discussion time.
  • Individual Liberty:
    Pupils will develop their individual liberty through freedom and choice of the content, audience and purpose of their writing (including developing and justifying own opinions). 
  • Tolerance and Mutual Respect:
    Pupils will learn about mutual respect through exploring character’s relationships, friendships, and behaviours. Children will be provided with the opportunity to discuss, debate and justify their own views and opinions, which in turn will develop empathy for others. Children will read and write about others’ personal experiences through autobiography work, non-fiction texts, and narrative work.
  • Rule of Law
    Texts are chosen to provide our pupils with a chance to explore the rule of the law in an age-appropriate manner.
