The Fundamental British Values have been raised by government to articulate a set of values within a broad anti-terrorism strategy; defined as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs.

 

The government has harnessed the early years sector for their anti-terrorism strategy by placing early years settings in scope of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015. Safeguarding children and protecting them from harm is the core work of the early years.  However, the promotion of Fundamental British Values as a specific measure to prevent young children being drawn into terrorism.
