Political impartiality guidance for schools

17 February 2022


The Government says:

“Everyone has their own views on particular subjects and issues and teachers are no different, but it is important that teachers explain things to their students in a way that is impartial. Teaching about political issues and the differing views on these is an essential part of the curriculum, helping pupils to form their own opinions and prepare them for later life. The law states that teachers must not promote partisan political views and should offer a balanced overview of opposing views when political issues are taught.”
