British Values

British Values

At LBM we actively promote the British Values of:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

We believe that the promotion and teaching of these values actively prepares our children for adult life. The promotion of British Values also supports the requirement placed on schools to implement the Prevent strategy. This is through our MSC (Moral, Social and Cultural) Education and is embedded in our everyday life in school.

LBM’s curriculum is designed to provide many opportunities for the children to explore British Values. Some of the ways in which this is done are detailed below:


Democracy – What do we do?
