Promoting British Values at Anlaby Primary School
At Anlaby Primary School, we encourage all pupils to regard diversity as something that is welcomed and celebrated and we provide an environment to allow pupils to understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
Encourage all children to regard and treat people of all faiths, races and cultures and life choices with respect and tolerance.

From 1 July 2015 the Prevent duty became law. This is a duty on all schools and registered early years providers to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism. In order to protect children in our care, we must be alert to any reason for concern in the child’s life at home or elsewhere. This includes awareness of the expression of extremist views. The school staff have received Prevent training.
For parents and carers, this quick list may be of some help.
Potential indicators of radicalisation or extremism in children / teenagers:
- Possesses unexplained gifts and clothing – groomers will sometimes use gifts such as mobile phones or expensive trainers to bribe a young person.
- Sudden or gradual change in physical appearance. Changing their style of dress to accord with a group.
- Sudden or unexpectedly wearing religious attire. Possession of materials or symbols associated with an extremist cause.
- Starts to become socially withdrawn / refusal to co-operate.
- Pupil visiting extremist websites, networks and blogs.

British Values and the Community
We feel it is really important for the children top realise that they are part of a wider community.
The BBC's annual Children in Need Day was a wonderful opportunity to show the children how they could support others here and abroad who are less fortunate. All the children brought a £1 to come in non-uniform for the day. They also brought any spare change they had to fill some Pudsey Bear Heads. They children were that keen that they filled three heads!
There was also a chance to buy a treat from the cake and bun sale organised by our school council.
We have also supported Hull's City of Culture with a special arts and craft day. One of our members of staff has been a volunteer for the City of Culture and even got a chance to meet the Queen!
