Promoting British Values
In its press release on 27 November 2014, the Department for Education told all schools to promote ‘British values’ and produced advice for doing so through Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural (SMSC) Teaching and Learning.
Ofsted wants to see a school ethos and climate that promotes ‘British values’ at every level.
