British Value – Mutual Respect

Year 3 and 4


All children have been learning about British Values.  At our school we promote British Values in order to prepare our children for life in modern Britain.

Working in collaboration with artist-in-residence Andrew Tims, children from Years 3 and 4 produced photomontages based on the British Value – Mutual Respect.  Using a range of imagery, including photographs of the young artists, the children created ‘scenes’ that they felt encapsulated the term.

Throughout the creative process the children were able to discuss the meaning of ‘mutual respect’ and below are three examples.

”If you are kind to others then they will be kind to you”

 “It’s respectful to listen to each other without interrupting”

 “If someone has a different religion to you, you should respect them and their beliefs”

 The six artworks, produced in small groups, includes imagery of respectful greetings, for example ‘waving hands’ and ‘shaking hands’ as well as work about ‘listening’ and ‘eye contact’, all illustrating the importance of ‘mutual respect’ within Britain.
