British Values

We often talk about 'values' but what exactly are they and where do we get them from? The Oxford English Dictionary defines values as being.......
'the beliefs people have about what is right and wring and what is most important in life, which control their behaviour'.
Our values come from nay sources- families, faith, schools, peers, media, society, organisations. 
At OMA British Values are defined as:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs
  • Participation in community life
At Offa's Mead Academy, we ensure that these core values are integral to our teaching as a whole and throughout the school day e.g. during assemblies.


For more information about British values, visit the  Citizenship Foundation website. or see the files at the bottom of the page.

Last academic year we focused on British Values in a lot our Monday morning assemblies with Mrs Greene. Below are some of the topics we covered.

The Magna Carta
The election- including our own mock election which reflected the eventual result!
The new Royal baby- we even wrote letters
British Heroes
