British Values

At Styal Primary School, we actively promote British Vaues and our school reflects them in all that we do. We ensure children leave our school prepared for life of modern Britain. We want to enable our children to develop a sense of community and begin to develop their understanding of their roles and responsibilities within it. Styal promotes the spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of our pupils. Children are actively encouraged to regard people of all faiths, cultures and religions with respect and tolerance.

  • Acknowledging those that follow rules and do the right thing - Star Styal certificates, Mrs Boardman's weekly awards and Citizens of the Year.
