but - do you all have a display showing British Values. We had one that I was a bit 'meh' about and have taken it down but have just read on the oracle that is Facebook that you need one for British Values and one for Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural. Now I only have 4 display boards and one is taken up with planning and next steps so if I need to provide boards to cover these two topics I am left with one to display any of the children's actual work.

 

I thought the whole thing around British Values was that if we were following the EYFS we were promoting it in our everyday actions and wouldn't need a board to say 'hey hey - look at us'.

 

What do you think?

Yes I totally agree it should be embedded in all that you already do within the EYFS.

However to have a poster or display could be a way of sharing this with others ie: parents/carers and any visitors.

We have some of those cardboard screens that we put out daily in our packaway setting. They are very lightweight, but quite robust.

Hope you're his helps.

No you don't need a display. In fact we have been advised not to have one as its all about what is embedded in our every day practice. I think people quickly put up displays when it first came out as a way of showing awareness of it. I have a small information poster on the parents notice board.

Indeed! In fact the guidance on the 4children site talks about going beyond tokenism and that it isn't enough to just have a display

I once went to a Collective Worship Co-ordinators meeting (church schools) where the person leading gave a lovely talk about how our everyday actions embody the values that are important to us (and our school in that particular context). She got us to think about what values actions such as picking up a child's coat and putting it back on a peg or holding a door open for someone can demonstrate. It really stuck with me and I often think of it when I hear the 'British values' phrase.
