the rule of law, mutual respect, individual liberty and tolerance of different faiths and cultures. This

includes national and internationally celebrated religious events and notable national days and events.

Additionally, assemblies and collective worship at Leyburn  Primary School recognise the need to respond to and

discuss world events as they occur; for example, outbreak of war or disease or the death of a respected person.
