British Values School Policy

Please click on the link above for the British Values Policy along with for further examples of teaching and learning 

At St Lawrence CE Primary School we uphold and teach pupils about the 'British Values' as directed under new Ofsted guidance, September 2014.  Democracy, rule of law, individual liberty,  mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths are taught explicitly through PSHE, Citizenship and RE, and are revisited and emphasised during worship.  We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum in which we actively promote British Values, and the children's work is evidence of this.  Actively promoting also means challenging pupils, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.

See below for some examples of how we teach and promote British Values at our School:


Each year our Year 6 children are invited by the Trustees of Barton, Bilsborrow and Myerscough War Memorial to attend The Service of Remembrance and Dedication in the Memorial Garden at Bilsborrow. The children join pupils from Bilsborrow John Cross and St Mary and St Andrew’s in the Memorial Garden to form a guard of honour. Twenty-three children from the three schools then lay crosses for each of the fallen. This year one of our pupils was also chosen to dress the standard.
