Clarification - Clearly define each of the five British values and how they will be promoted and embodied within the school.

Incorporation - Identify ways in which the British values can be integrated into the curriculum, pastoral support, and extra-curricular activities.

Monitoring and Evaluation - Develop methods for monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of the British values policy and making necessary changes.

Communication - Ensure that the British values policy is easily accessible to all members of the school community and is communicated effectively.
