British Values

Promoting Fundamental British Values

In accordance with The Department for Education's Guidance on promoting fundamental British values in schools, we aim to actively promote British values to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.

Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and 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.

The British values are:

• democracy
• rule of law
• individual liberty
• mutual respect
• tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs.


Each of these values are regularly taught / highlighted in curriculum lessons at Oakley, as well as being taught explicitly as part of our school assemblies.


For example, our School Council are democratically elected, and in January 2024, we welcomed local MP the Rt. Hon. Richard Fuller to talk to the children about democracy and his role as a Member of Parliament. Mr. Fuller met with the School Council and was thrilled to hear all about their active roles in listening to the student body and seeking to make positive changes at the school.

Welcome to Oakley Primary Academy

It brings me great pleasure to welcome you to Oakley Primary Academy, a proud member of the Meridian Trust. Having joined the school in September 2023, I am honoured to be here to seek to make Oakley the first-choice school for parents and carers in the heart of the community of our wonderful village and local area.

We hope that, during their time with us, our children will enjoy exciting new experiences, deepen and broaden their knowledge of our curriculum, make new friends and love every day. We are very fortunate to have a highly-experienced, professional and dedicated staff body whom I know are committed to ensuring we do our very best for your children.

If you are a parent / carer who is considering sending your child to join our fantastic school, we encourage you to come and see us 'in action' during the day. We are confident that you will agree this is a place your child can thrive.

I look forward to meeting you.

Mr. Callum Brown
