British Values

At Asquith Primary School we are proud of our links within British history. Our school is named after Herbert Henry Asquith, born in Morley in 1852 and the Prime Minister from 1908 until 1916. Children learn about Lord Asquith and our local heritage and also consider how we fit into the wider context of Leeds and Britain as a whole. We take part in local civic events and are establishing links with schools in other parts of the country in order to help children develop their understanding of their role in society.
