Stoke Primary and British Values

British Values




Our STOKE values are celebrated and understood by our children and feed into the themes of Democracy, Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect and Tolerance. These are the values that have been recognised as ‘British’ values and are taught through a wide range of experiences and opportunities at Stoke Primary School.


Stoke Primary school welcomes children from over 30 different countries. There is not one dominant country and we embrace the individual and unique experiences and values each child brings.




We encourage all children to realise that they are decision makers and can influence positive change.

  • Children are encouraged to reflect on their own and the choices of others.
  • Children are involved in daily collaborative tasks and are encouraged to be solution focused.
  • Children’s decisions are treated with respect.
  • Children understand they have rights as well as responsibilities.
  • Children are encouraged to be truthful.
  • Children are supported to make kind and positive choices and have the opportunity to reflect on not so positive choices.
  • Children are taught to be kind and empathetic and to consider how their choices reflect these values.
