British Values

The Department for Education have reinforced the need “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 Rhyl we believe in developing our pupil’s skills to become global citizens with a social and cultural capital. We want our pupils to have an excellent understanding of, and strong engagement with, the locality in which they live. Whether that be our school environment, local community, our nation or the wider world of which we are apart. We therefore support and teach the DfE British Values.

At Rhyl, these values are reinforced and shared regularly with the children through assemblies, themed weeks and events and classroom learning.

British Values = Rhyl Values

Democracy – We all have a voice and we are all listened to: We have a Junior Leadership Team and we all get to vote so we can make important decisions about our school

The Rule of Law – We follow our Golden Rules to make sure everyone is safe, happy and achieving well at school

Individual Liberty – We all have the right to choose: We help each other to make choices that are safe, wise and considerate

Mutual Respect – We show empathy and appreciation for each other. We are all different but we recognise each other’s special qualities

Tolerance of Those With Different Faiths And Beliefs – We celebrate our diversity. While we come from many different parts of the world and have different faiths, we are united as one: Our Rhyl Community
