Webinar VIII: The role of fundamental British values in schools & community cohesion

Developing best practice in your school

Thursday 23rd April 2015 | 4:00pm–4:45pm (45 minutes)

Since September 2014, all schools in England are required to actively promote fundamental British values to their pupils, both in lessons and in extracurricular activities delivered by the school.

Ofsted has set out clearer guidance about how schools do this through spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, as well as active implementation by teachers and their role in maintaining high standards of ethics and behaviour, within and outside of their school.

Consequently, this webinar will:

  • Consider Ofsted expectations about promoting fundamental British values (FBV) and the role of schools;
  • Show how FBV as defined by Ofsted can contribute effectively to spiritual, moral, social and cultural development in pupils;
  • Provide teachers with ideas for the classroom that can promote fundamental British values;
  • Show how safeguarding pupils relates to FBV.
