A Visit from Deputy Lord Leiutenant of Lancashire

To support and promote British Values, children in KS2 were delighted to welcome John Barnett MBE, DL the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire.

During his visit, he captivated the children by talking about his important role, representing HM The Queen, and to explain the Commonwealth and the part Britain plays within it. The children were fascinated by his military-style uniform that included a sword and his MBE medal. As a finale, he taught them how to salute.

Paige in year 3 said, “There are 53 countries in the Commonwealth.”

Paulina said, “About a third of the world is made up of Commonwealth countries.”
