BRITISH VALUES

AT WESTBURY PARK

"COMPASSION AND TOLERANCE ARE NOT A SIGN OF WEAKNESS BUT A SIGN OF STRENGTH,"DALAI LAMA  

By embedding a culture of everyone being a Westbury Park Citizen - children, staff, parents and members of the local community- we are able to actively promote British Values and give our children the strength of character to believe in themselves, be proud of where they come from and have a voice that will always be heard.

At Westbury Park School, we actively promote British Values through our school vision and principles, curriculum and enrichment opportunities. We encourage all pupils to treat everyone with respect and kindness, tolerance and understanding. Children understand that there are rules of law within our school and in the world around them whilst also recognising that opinions should always be listened to and respected.

More information about what we do at Westbury Park to promote British Values is listed below.
