Learn about Fundamental British Values at National Museums Liverpool

school children at a museum learning session

At National Museums Liverpool the promotion of fundamental British values is firmly embedded in the learning offer available to school and community groups of all ages. The learning, development, and welfare of all our participants is integral to the work that we do. Our aim is to maximise social impact and educational benefit for all, as well as to promote good and active citizenship.

Our education sessions utilise an integrated approach that provides students and educators with opportunities to explore who we are, where we live, and how we live together. In this way, participants can further develop values and qualities that are based on respect, harmony, and sharing ideas. We also aim to inspire discussion to explore these ideas together as part of our education sessions, which helps students to understand more about their own identity. 

Our learning sessions support the Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) development of learners, through a variety of learning opportunities that are informed by the National Curriculum. Our experienced and skilled education staff are well versed in utilising a wide range of techniques to stimulate learners and increase engagement. Our multi-sensory education sessions can be adapted to support students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) or additional access requirements. 

The sessions below are recommended for schools and groups wanting to take part in learning experiences that are especially relevant to fundamental British values in terms of the concepts and skills explored.
