Department of Education Guidance
In November 2014 the Department for Education amended guidance to all schools, both independent and state-maintained through a press release.
Whereas previously schools were required to ‘respect’ British values new guidance made clear that all schools have a duty to “actively promote” British Values. As such every school is required to demonstrate a clear strategy for embedding these values and show how their work has been effective in doing so.
Arguably most importantly, schools were advised that Ofsted and the independent inspectorates would now take the work of schools in this area into account during inspections.
Extract from Department for Education Press Release
The Department for Education has today (27 November 2014) published guidance on promoting British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.
“…..Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools Lord Nash explained the changes were designed to “tighten up the standards on pupil welfare to improve safeguarding, and the standards on spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils to strengthen the barriers to extremism”.
