Chapter 5 considers the response of Engagement to the FBV requirement. This is the more infrequent instances of direct engagement with the FBV in schools, including teachers’ incursions into controversial/sensitive issues. The chapter explores some of the practical and affective constraints for teachers, on conducting what Cantle has called ‘dangerous conversations’. Chapter 5 also explores the priorities of teacher-respondents, their interpretation of the FBV policy to fit with their emphasis on developing students’ moral behaviours, especially mutual respect, and the commonalities and differences across the schools in the research, in terms of how ‘useful’ staff understood the FBV requirement to be in relation to their pupil populations.
