McMillan Nursery School

Fundamental British Values


  • democracy.
  • the rule of law.
  • individual liberty.
  • mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs, and for those without faith.



A situation where everyone is treated equally and has equal rights.


The rule of law

Learning to manage our own feelings and behaviour: about learning right from wrong: about behaving within agreed and clearly defined boundaries: about dealing with the consequences.


Individual Liberty

Helping children to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and increase their confidence in their own abilities


Mutual Respect and tolerance

Learning to treat others as we want to be treated. How to be part of a community, manage our feelings and behaviour; and form relationships with others.

At McMillan Nursery School we actively promote Fundamental British Values


  • We listen to the voices of our children and their families, and take pride in our school community. 
  • We consistently reinforce our high expectations of our children. Children are taught the reasons behind our expectations and that there are consequences when rules of broken. 
  • Within our safe and supportive nursery environment, children are actively encouraged to make choices on a day-to-day basis. 
  • We encourage children to treat each other, and our environment, with respect. We care for each other and listen to each other. 
  • "Sharing is caring"
  • At McMillan we take pride in our multi-cultural setting and teach our children to celebrate the diversity in which we live and learn. We encourage parents and carers to support and participate in our events together as a community.
