British Values

From 1 July 2015 the Prevent Duty became law. This is a duty on all schools and registered early years providers to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism.

In order to protect children in our care, we must be alert to any reason for concern in the child’s life at home or elsewhere. This includes awareness of the expression of extremist views.

“British Values” are a set of four values introduced to help keep children safe and promote their welfare – as is the duty of all providers following the EYFS.

Although the term ‘Fundamental British Values’ is a new requirement, it is not a new concept and has been securely embedded within the Early Years Foundation Stage and within the day to day teachings of our Nursery.

The Fundamental British Values are: 

 Democracy

 The rule of law

 Individual Liberty

 Mutual Respect and Tolerance

How do we promote these? 

Although these terms seem a little daunting, the way in which we implement them in Nursery is actually very simple.

In Summary 

Here at Caversham Nursery we recognise how British Values are part of our everyday teaching and link directly to the Early Years Foundation Stage. We are confident that we demonstrate these values on a daily basis, building the solid foundations our children need to develop, learn and succeed.
