What are British Values?
Here in Britain, we are fortunate to live in a democracy, where each adult is able to vote at a General Election and in local elections. The politicians who receive the most votes from the public are then voted in to Parliament and to local government. This means that we, as British citizens, have a direct role to play in who leads and runs our country. If the politicians do a good job, we might choose to vote for them again. If they do a poor job, then we are likely to vote for other candidates!
The Rule of Law
Here in Britain, we have a society that operates under the rule of law. This means that laws, created by Parliament and enforced by the Police and through the law courts, determine what is considered by society to be right and wrong. It is our responsibility and duty as British citizens to then follow the laws that are in place, as they are designed to provide us with a safe, disciplined and tolerant society in which to live.
Here in Britain, as long as we do not break the law, we can live as we choose to and have our own opinions about things.
The Freedom to Hold Other Faiths and Beliefs
Here in Britain, we are fortunate to live in a tolerant society where we are each free to hold whatever faith or belief (or no faith or belief) we choose. Although British society has been founded on the traditions of the Christian faith, it has become increasingly diverse in the faiths and beliefs that are practised, with a number of British citizens practising other major world faiths such as Islam, Judaism, Sikhism and Hinduism, amongst others. This freedom for each of us to hold whatever faith or belief (or no faith or belief) we choose is a fundamental human right and is one that we should always seek to carefully guard and protect.
Respect for Others
Here in Britain, we seek to be respectful of one another, regardless of differences that may exist in our background, social status, colour, race, ethnicity, gender, disability, religion or lifestyle choice. This respect is also enshrined in law – for example, in the Equality Act of 2010.
