Here are a few examples of how British Values can be promoted within the learning environment
Children begin to respect other people views and feeling – this can be promoted during discussion times
Encourage turn-taking, sharing and collaborating – introduce turn taking activities into circle time
Everyone has a voice – encourage children during story time, etc. to share their opinions and encourage children to respect these views
- Rule of Law
Teaching children right from wrong – Helping children to understand consequences
Helping children to create rules- for example, create rules together about tidying up, this will help children understand about rules.
Use of golden rules
- Individual Liberty
Provides opportunities for children to develop their confidence and self-esteem.
Allow children to take risks
Understand that everyone has different opinions
- Mutual Respect and Tolerance
Create an environment where everyone is treated equally and where different faiths, cultures and races are valued
Share and respect others opinions
Engage with the wider community
Share stories where they promote diverse attitudes and it allows adults and children to challenge stereotypes
It is down to the setting to demonstrate how they are promoting the values, however, why not use this British Values Audit to show how your setting actively promote these values.
