“…. In our schools it is our responsibility to tackle those who actively undermine fundamental British values or equalities law. That doesn’t just mean Ofsted, but everyone involved in education.”
Amanda Spielman, Chief Schools Inspector, told a Church of England education conference, January 2018
The Chief Schools Inspector used a speech to a Church of England education conference last month to warn schools that they should not assume that the “most conservative voices” of a particular faith group speak for everyone.
She argued, “rather than adopting a passive liberalism, that says ‘anything goes’ for fear of causing offence school leaders should be promoting a muscular liberalism.”
“Giving way to the loudest voices is the opposite of tolerance.”
Gresham’s KS2 & KS3 British Values Series is a range of books and posters to help leaders promote British Values with ‘muscular liberalism’.
Each book explains and promote a core British Values theme:
- The rule of law
- Mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs
With important concepts supported with discussion and written activities.
