Promoting British Values

Promoting British Values as Little Pixies Nursery

Little Pixies actively promotes the fundamental values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths or beliefs.  These are interpreted for our youngest children by;

• Learning right from wrong

• Learning to take turns and share

• Challenging negative views and stereotypes

For older children the values will be shared and discussed so that they can be encouraged to state which of the values they consider to be most important. Examples of these, in no particular order, may include;

• Being honest

• Being brave

• Being friendly

• Trusting people

• Appreciating what we have

• Keeping on trying

• Being kind

• Understanding that sometimes we are different and sometimes the same

• Sharing and taking turns

• Taking responsibility

• Being fair

We do not promote views and theories that are contrary to established scientific or historical evidence and explanations.

Values arise from principles that influence and direct our behaviour and our policies and procedures uphold and reflect our commitment to promoting these values. We will endeavor to work closely with all the children and the adults involved in their lives to provide a consistent approach which models desirable spiritual, social, moral and cultural values.
