At Red Dragon Pre-School, we actively promote British Values as defined under the Ofsted Guidance 2014, through our Pre-School vision. At Red Dragon Pre-School, we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all our children and families and undertake a variety of events and experiences to celebrate these.


What are British Values?

In the Early Education and childcare: Statutory guidance for local authorities document by the DfE – British values are described as:

“Fundamental British values, first set out in the Government’s Prevent strategy, are democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. The promotion of fundamental British values will be reflected in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and exemplified in an age-appropriate way through practice guidance”

The government define these values as:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths

We promote these values by:

  • Celebrating British occasions and festivals
  • Teaching children to listen to each other
  • Encouraging children how to be kind, helpful and respectful of others
  • Being role models and teaching table manners
  • Learning about our heritage and history
  • Being polite, saying please and thank you
  • Promoting listening during story and song time
  • Teaching empathy and understanding
  • Teaching appropriate behaviour and learning right from wrong
  • Encouraging children to taking turns and share
  • Learning all about weather and seasons
  • Being part of local community through outings and partnerships with St Blaise our local school, library bus etc.
  • Making friends and exploring friendships
  • Tolerating others and mutual respect
  • Cooking, eating and learning about traditional foods
