Promoting Fundamental British Values.
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in Pre-School to ensure our children are prepared for life in modern Britain.
Children are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Key Values are:
• rule of law
• individual liberty
• mutual respect
• tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
These values are embedded through-out our practice everyday.
We promote Democracy by giving the children opportunities to develop their self-confidence and self-awareness, to make choices and decisions about what they want to explore and how they're going to use the resources that are accessible to them.
We promote Rule of law by having golden rules, we learn about managing our own feelings through play. and we learn right from wrong
We promote Individual Liberty by helping the children to develop a positive sense of themselves. Every time we provide opportunities for children to gather wild flowers, mix their own colours for leaf painting or take part in a sack race we are helping them to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and increase their confidence in their own abilities.
We promote Mutual Respect by learning how to treat others as we want to be treated ourselves. How to be part of a community, manage our feelings and behaviour; and form relationships with others.
We promote Tolerance of Faiths by giving lots of opportunities to practice tolerance and to challenge stereotypes. For example, through sharing stories that reflect and value the diversity of children’s experiences and providing resources and activities that challenge gender, cultural and racial stereotyping.
