SMSC & Fundamental British Values


British Values Statement

The DfE has reinforced their guidance given to schools to actively promote the fundamental British Values of Democracy: The Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, through their provision of the SMSC curriculum. 


At Leigh Primary School, we take our responsibility to prepare children for life in modern Britain very seriously. We ensure that our Values Education - including the fundamental British Values - are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and day-to-day work of the school. Our Values Education - including British Values - are threaded through the whole curriculum and every opportunity is taken to reinforce and embed them. It is especially through our R.E, collective worship, SMSC and PSHE curriculum that provides excellent opportunities to elaborate and develop children’s understanding.
