Fundamental British Values

Fundamental British Values
 

Fundamental British Values are at the heart of everything we do at Ashworth Nursery School. There are four British Values that we promote: Rule of LawIndividual LibertyDemocracyMutual tolerance and respect. These four values all fit within the categories of Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PESD) and Understanding of the World (UTW).

We focus on promoting the more general concepts within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and understand that the children’s development within these areas is key to promoting the values in the long term.

Rule of Law- understanding rules Individual Liberty- freedom for all
  • Help children understand boundaries and acceptable behaviour
  • Help children think about keeping safe away from danger
  • Ensure that children understand their own and other’s behaviour and the consequences and learn to distinguish right from wrong
  • Collaborate with children to create the rules and the codes of behaviours e.g. the rules about tidying up and that children understand rules apply to everyone




 

  • Help children understand that they have the right to feel safe and not frightened
  • Help children to understand feelings and teach the language of feelings
  • Teach children to say ‘no’ if they don’t like/want to do something
  • Encourage a range of experiences that allow children to explore the language of feelings and responsibility, reflect on their differences and understand that we are free to have different opinions
  • Develop a positive sense of themselves. Provide opportunities for children to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem, and increase their confidence in their own abilities
