The Government set out its initial definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent strategy, and supplemented this with additional guidance in November 2014. Publishing the guidance, Lord Nash said:
"We want every school to promote the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs."
A key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background. This ensures young people understand the importance of respect and leave School fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
