British Values

Old Basford School Celebration of British Values and Cultural Diversity 2019 -2020



Here at Old Basford School we strive for all our children, regardless of their background, to value, respect and celebrate the school and wider community.  We strongly encourage them to become independent, well rounded members of a diverse British society who treat others with respect and tolerance. We celebrate difference and diversity, which is at the heart of our school.


What are British values?


According to Ofsted, British values are:

  • democracy;
  • the rule of law;
  • individual liberty;
  • mutual respect;
  • tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith;
  • responsibility


Every school in England must promote British values.
