British values

The Department for Education has said: "We want to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs." 

At The Meadows, we are very proud of the diverse range of activities we provide for the children and we strive to demonstrate these values. Please see our overview of how we ensure that the children of The Meadows understand British Values

If you feel you may have something to offer the school linked with British Values (or know someone else who might be keen to), we would love to hear from you. Please contact the school office.
