How do we prepare children for life in modern Britain?

Andrew Moffat - No Outsiders: All Different, All Welcome

Andrew Moffat MBE is Personal Development Lead at Excelsior Multi Academy Trust in Birmingham, England and the author of several books and educational resources.

We are so excited to be welcoming Andrew to our school on the 8th of April for our INSET Day. We are already implementing 'No Outsiders' assemblies weekly in our school.

The Department for Education states that there is a need


“to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”



  The Department for Education defines British Values as follows:


  • Respect for democracy and support or participation in the democratic process                        
  • Respect for the basis on which the law is made and applies in England
  • Support for equality of opportunity for all
  • Support and respect for the liberties of all within the law
  • Respect for and tolerance of different faiths and religious and other beliefs


 We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and, in particular, RE, PSHE and Assemblies provide opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world. We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British Society and to the world.
