Help schools with intakes from one predominant racial, cultural or religious background broaden their teaching

Last updated: 12:33pm 12 July 2018

We will work with schools to make sure that those with intakes from one predominant racial, cultural or religious background teach their students about pluralistic, British values and help them to get to know people with different ways of life.
Conservative Party Manifesto 2017, p.55

Our verdict

The government has promised to work with schools to help teach pluralistic British values in schools that have student bodies that are dominated by a particular racial, cultural or religious background.

The government is working on preparing a strategy for this purpose, called the Integrated Communities Strategy, which will be supported with £50 million of government money. They are currently carrying out a consultation on its proposed plans and this is scheduled to finish on the 5th June 2018.

With the consultation ongoing, the plans have yet to come into effect. This policy is therefore considered as ‘in progress’.

Wait, there’s more!

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
