Below are a list of some examples that we embed into every day life at Fairmeadows:
Democracy: We make decisions together.
- Staff encourage children to see their role in the bigger picture, encouraging children to know their views count, value each other’s views and values and talk about their feelings, for example when they do or do not need help.
- We demonstrate democracy in action, e.g) children sharing views on their choice of activity with a show of hands.
- Staff support the decisions that children make and provide activities that involve turn-taking, sharing and collaboration.
- All questions in our classroom are valued, which helps to develop the children's enquiring minds.
