Fundamental British Values form part of the Early Years curriculum and are there to reflect life in the modern Britain; they underpin what it is like to be a citizen in our modern and diverse country, valuing our community and celebrating diversity of the UK.
So what are the British Values and how are they reflected in our nursery?
- our children are treated equally and have equal rights
- our children are taught to take turns, share, collaborate and make decisions together
2. Rule of Law
- our children are supported to develop understanding that rules matter, behave within clearly defined boundaries and deal with consequences
- our children learn to manage their own feelings and emotions, and recognise right from wrong
3. Individual Liberty
- our children are supported to develop a positive sense of themselves, their self-knowledge, self-esteem and confidence
- our children are encouraged to reflect on their differences and understand that we are all free to have different opinions
4. Mutual Respect and Tolerance
- our children recognise the importance of treating others how they want to be treated
- our children learn to appreciate and respect their own culture and the culture of others, and share their experiences, celebrations and traditions
