British Values at PTM

We all live in Britain, as British citizens we should work towards following our British values.

These are:-


Britain is a democracy – this means that the people in Britain vote for the people who make the laws and decide how the country is run.  If we didn’t have a democracy, just one person might be able to make all the laws and that would not be fair.

The Rule of the Law

In Britain we have a police force who make sure people do not do the wrong thing and break the law – this means that we are safe.

Individual Liberty

In Britain, as long as we do not break the law, we can live as we choose to and have our own opinions about things.

Mutual Respect

We might not always agree with other people, but we try to show respect for their thoughts and feelings.  We can give respect to others and we can expect other people to show us respect.

Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

In Britain we accept that people have a range of different beliefs and they may be of a particular faith or religion.

At Pear Tree Mead we help children to learn and understand about British values through our assemblies, PSHE lessons and through the day to day running of the school.  Our School Vision links in closely with our British Values.  Our School Vision is displayed around the school to help to remind children of how we expect them to behave.  These values are held in our school ethos and statement and are an important part of Pear Tree Mead.
