LCPS British Values Statement

Through our school vision, charter, curriculum and teaching we promote tolerance and respect for all cultures, faiths and lifestyles.


As a school we have a duty to prepare our learners for life in modern Britain and to keep them safe. A positive inclusive ethos with clear expectations for behaviour towards one another   underpins this. All learners are members of mixed age ‘Family Groups’ which meet on a weekly basis and these promote care/tolerance for each other and shared learning experiences.


Curricular Links


Our RE curriculum develops learners understanding of a broad range of cultures and faiths. PSHE/SEAL sessions draw out themes which help learners to develop respect for others.


Daily registration group ‘reflection time’, ‘thought for the week’ discussions, weekly current affairs assemblies, special event/celebrations (Easter, Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas), themed learning weeks (Anti-bullying, E-safety) and regular charity events all contribute to a strong sense of community.


Specific topics which are part of our integrated curriculum which show our commitment to clear British Values are:-

  • RE visits to special places
  • Local history knowledge of Alvaston, Wilmorton, Derby, Derbyshire.
  • History of Parliament, visit to London Houses of Parliament.
  • British landmarks and there importance.
  • Peak District National Park and heritage.
  • Studies about British monarchs.




Class/School Council is a platform for ‘pupil voice’ enabling learners to directly question or  challenge how LCPS could be ‘even better’.


Rule of Law


The theme of good citizenship and being a valued part of ‘Lakeside Community’ is a clear thread through or strong behaviour policy and School Charter. The School Charter and conduct  expectations are promoted at the beginning of each academic year throughout the school. We also work closely with our local PCSO’s and they are regularly seen around school.


Individual liberty/mutual respect/tolerance of faiths and beliefs


At LCPS we actively encourage learners to make informed choices knowing that they are in a   supportive environment in which we foster safe boundaries. Respect for one another is a central theme of our community and is particularly evident in our ‘Family Group’ structure. We give learners many opportunities to experience the cultural diversity of society in which we live and promote shared positive, moral views. Our PHSE sessions enhance this aspect.




Any learner considered to be at risk of being exposed to any extremist material/views or influences will be given support within school and we also work with local agencies such as the ‘Prevent’ team to protect individuals.
