Prevent and British Values

What is the Prevent duty?

There are lots of decisions that need to be made for everyone in Britain. Democracy is a way of making decisions.

The British democracy allows the people to have freedom of speech (although not to offend others) and intends to ensure that no person is discriminated against because of factors such as their age, race, religion or sexual orientation.



The principle that all people and institutions are subject and accountable to law, that is fairly applied and enforced; the principle of government by law.





The individual liberty we have means we can make lots of choices about how to live our lives.

It doesn’t mean complete freedom – there are rules. Some of these are to keep us safe and to make sure we don’t hurt anyone else. It allows us to live as we choose and to have our own opinions and views.



Mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

Mutual respect is when two people may not agree on everything but agree to work things out because they respect each other. Mutual respect is important in all aspects of life including employment and education.
