What are British values?


Our British values are acceptance and engagement with:


  • Democracy

  • The rule of law (by respecting and upholding laws)

  • Individual liberty

  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs


Pupils at Bosham develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate and contribute positively to life in modern Britain. The way we teach these skills is embedded within our curriculum and ethos. Here are just some of the ways we have achieved this:



  • We listen to all views
  • We debate arguments for and against
  • We become involved
  • We express our views peacefully
  • We vote and respect the result of the majority
  • Through our school council


Rule of Law

  • We make sure that our rules and expectations are very clear
  • We know the difference between right and wrong
  • We know that rules protect us
  • We respect the rules


Individual Liberty

  • We are responsible for our own behaviour
  • We challenge stereotype and bias
  • We are an anti-bullying school
  • We promote self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
  • We model freedom of speech respectfully


Respect and Tolerance

  • We promote respect
  • We have respect for our own and others' cultures
  • We discuss differences of faith, ethnicity, disability, gender and families
