British Values

British Values at Milton Park Primary School 


In accordance with the Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law. At Milton Park Primary School British Values work alongside our School Values and together they run through everything we do within school and beyond.





As our pupils progress through Milton Park, our curriculum emphasises many aspects of democracy.

Pupils are always listened to by adults and are taught to listen carefully and with concern to each other, respecting the right of every individual to have their opinions and voices heard. Pupils also have the opportunity to air their opinions and ideas through our School Ambassadors and regular pupil voice with teachers. The elections of the Ambassadors reflect our British electoral system and demonstrates democracy in action.



We have three school values: Respect, Resilience and Responsibility.
To ensure these are realised, school rules are important. Children regularly discuss aspects of behaviour, both within class and when appropriate, with adults across the school. Teachers begin each new year by creating Class Charters. These are formulated with the children and displayed on the wall of the classroom. In this way, every child knows the standard of behaviour that we expect in our school. The school manages behaviour positively; we use a range of rewards, such as praise, house points and celebration assemblies to share success. There are sanctions within our behaviour policy to be used where necessary and there are occasions where we personalise a support programme for children in consultation with their key adults and family.



At Milton Park, children are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for all children to make choices safely, through provision of a safe environment and an empowering approach through their education. Children are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms. They are advised how to exercise these safely, through our E-Safety and PSHE lessons. Children are further empowered through being part of our buddy system and our anti-bullying ambassadors. Children are given the freedom to make a wide range of choices from attending extra-curricular clubs to supporting fundraising events.

What do we do?

  • Support children to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and resilience.
  • Support children to take risks in their play and know when play is 'safe enough'.
  • Encourage pupils to take responsibility for their behaviour, as well as knowing their rights.
  • Challenge stereotypes and respect everyone.
  • Implement a strong anti-bullying culture.



It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. Each week we have a ‘Celebration Assembly’ within which we recognise pupils for a number of different reasons. Our children take on a broad range of responsibilities including school ambassadors, anti-bullying ambassadors and sports leaders.
Our children have many talents that we showcase through a range of performance opportunities. We actively support charitable causes and have raised money for a variety of causes, including local food banks.

We work closely with our local community and welcome visitors to school to share their knowledge about their cultures. 



At Milton Park Primary School we educate children from a range of nationalities and cultures. We are a caring and kind community who aim to promote an environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure. Discrimination is not tolerated and is dealt with quickly. Every member of the school community is encouraged to behave in a considerate way towards others.
We treat all children equally and aim to help children to grow in a safe and secure environment, and to become respectful, responsible and increasingly independent members of the school community.
