British Values Statement

Policy statement

As part of the Department of Education’s British Values, we recognise that Grove Road Pre-school is required to ensure children are protected from radicalisation by those wishing to unduly or illegally influence them.

At Grove Road Pre-school we promote the British Values of Democracy, the Rule of the Law, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.  We aim for our children, staff and parents to treat others with respect and tolerance regardless of background.


We support children with caring, sharing, taking turns and behaving appropriately.  Certain rules are in place to keep children safe, respect the environment, help each other and manage behavioural issues.

We use books and other media to teach empathy and understanding and also learn about different religions and cultures by celebrating festivals/events, trying different foods and having a range of books to look through.

The children are encouraged to be independent and make choices from a young age knowing that they are in a safe environment.
