Promoting British Values Primary Assembly

This assembly is meant as an introduction to teaching about British values
By janineb

Promoting SMSC - British Values - informative assembly and guidance on running a British Values Day

I recently ran a very successful British Values Day. I began the day by inviting parents/carers/governors in and delivered the attached assembly presentation to them as well as to pupils. I then gave each class a value of their own (see guidance). Classes were able to be as creative as they liked but were asked to give me one outstanding piece of display work so I could create a British Values display at the entrance of the school (see photo of display). Pupils dressed-up in their cultural clothes or wore red/blue/white and all brought in a 'gold coin donation' to give to charity.

The assembly goes through each of the British Values and their meanings. There is a song and video clip attached as well as a short quiz at the end. Promoting British Values is extremely important, Ofsted say: 'Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and, within this, the promotion of fundamental British values, are at the heart of the school’s work.'

Powerpoint could also be used for a KS2 lesson on British Values.

If you have any questions or need any support, send me a message and I'll do anything I can to help.

Resource Content
Maintained schools have obligations under section 78 of the Education Act (2002) which requires schools, as part of a broad and balanced curriculum, to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and
physical development of pupils at the school and of society, this now included British Values.
Pupils must be encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect
and tolerance.
It is expected that pupils should understand that while different people may hold different
views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in the United Kingdom are subject to its law.
The school’s ethos and teaching, which schools should make parents aware of, should
support the rule of English civil and criminal law and schools should not teach anything
that undermines it.

Pack includes:
❂ Literacy Activities
❂ Geography Activities
❂ History Activities
❂ Tons of printables
❂ Beautifully illustrated class posters in colour
