The Department of Education have stated the need to:
create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
The Government outlined the Key British Values as: Democracy, The Rule of Law, Liberty and Mutual Tolerance and Respect.
At Earls Colne these values are taught within a number of curriculum areas and also in the day-to-day life of the school.

Each year the children decide upon their class rules and the rights associated with these. All the children contribute to the drawing up of the class rules.
The Rule of Law
The importance of laws, whether they are those that govern the class, the school, or the country, is consistently reinforced at Earls Colne.
At Earls Colne, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment.
Mutual Tolerance and Respect
Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy has emerged from the need to equip our children with the understanding that people may have beliefs that differ to our own but are equally valid.
