Calton Playgroup

Here are some examples of how British Values are embedded in our day-to-day curriculum:

  • We teach children to be kind, helpful and respectful of others;
  • We teach children to be part of their local community;
  • We plan to celebrate festivals and mark special days from the world around us;
  • We teach the children about compromise – that some of us believe one thing… some of us believe something totally different… but we can all play together in the setting and respect each other = British values – teaching about similarities and differences.
  • We teach children to work together – we provide them with activities that involve everyone in the setting and we plan group times, where children learn to listen, take turns and value contributions from others. This type of planning is a very important part of British values = teaching about shared values and working together towards a common goal;
  • We teach children about the world in which they live – the world on their doorstep and the wider world – through books, posters, planned activities, resources, outings and much more;
  • We teach children to listen and respect others.
  • We teach children about the world around them and use the seasons, weather, special days (birthday) to plan meaningful learning experiences;
  • We teach children about Britain, showing them the work of sculptors and artists to inspire creativity, listening to music to promote dance and drama (and listening skills of course).
  • We extend teaching, using the library and online sources of information and support them as they learn to respect others by introducing music, dance, art etc. from around the world.
