Alfred Salter Primary School

British Values


  • Our school council is a body of students who have been elected by their peers. They form an active role in leading the strategic direction of our school.
  • The school’s history curriculum helps the children to appreciate the democratic freedoms of our modern-day society.

The Rule of Law

  • Our school has clearly articulated expectations for our children’s behaviour, our rules. From the time they join our school community, children begin to learn about why we have these expectations and the impact on others and consequences if these expectations are not met.
  • Developing our school value of compassion helps the children to think about the impact of their actions on other people.
  • During their time in school children have the opportunity to hear from people who work to uphold the law, for example through community police officers and leading year group assemblies.
  • Our Play Council our out in the playgrounds regularly helping children to understand and implement the rules of games they play. 

Individual Liberty

  • Our pupils are actively encouraged to make choices within the safe supportive environment of the school.
  • Children are educated to help them stay safe, as they make choices both in school and beyond, for example by learning about online safety and consent.
  • Developing our school value of courage help children to have the confidence to make their own choices and also to speak out when they see something wrong.

Mutual Respect

  • The consistent use of Restorative Justice as part of our behaviour policy, helps our children to develop their understanding of the perspectives of others helping them to develop their respect for others.
  • The development of our value of compassion helps our children to develop their respect for others

Tolerance of Those of Different Faiths

  • Children learn about the main different faiths through our Religious Education (RE) curriculum. We believe that it is only through a clear understanding of the beliefs of others that children can have tolerance of these beliefs.
  • As part of this RE curriculum, during their time with us, children will visit places of worship of different faiths and listen to visiting speakers from different faiths.
  • Our assembly programme is carefully planned with weekly themes that include learning about some of the main religious festivals from a range of faiths during the year, further developing our children’s understanding.
  • We are lucky enough to have a diverse school community in which a wide range of faiths are represented. Through their daily interactions with others of different faiths or no faith, children further develop their understanding and tolerance of different belief systems to their own.
  • Developing our school value of curiosity ensures that our pupils want to know more about unfamiliar things, such as the beliefs of others, and thus further their understanding and tolerance.
