British Values




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.

At the core of Old Basford School values are our PROUD rules, each of which embed our inclusive ethos and opportunities for all children to succeed. 

We promote the basic British values of democracy, the rules of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and  tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.  This specifically can be seen through our PSHE and SEALs programme, as well as a number of practical opportunities which are available to our pupils.  For example:


  • Assemblies
  • Guest Speakers
  • Whole school themed days/weeks
  • School Council
  • Eco Council
  • Outdoor Learning club
  • Positive behaviour
  • Playground guardians
  • Amigos (Buddy support)
  • Guidance and support when dealing with inappropriate behaviour
  • Charity work
  • Celebrating different faiths and cultures
  • We teach children that they can influence decision making through democratic process
  • Appreciation of rules and laws to protect people
  • School trips
  • Sports Day
  • Dramatic Performances
  • Links within the local and wider community
