Statement on British Values

At Westfield Infant School we actively promote the fundemental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

We aim to help our children develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to become responsible citizens who are tolerant, respect other and are able to challenge prejudical and discriminating behaviour.

We will promote these values throughout all aspects of school life. We will endeavor to do this with care and sensitivity, ensuring that we promote inclusivity and unity between pupils, parents and our community.
