School Values

What is Values-based Education?

Values-based Education is a philosophy which underpins all of our thoughts and actions. It creates a strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement and develops students' social and relationship skills that last throughout their lives. The positive learning environment is achieved through the positive values modelled by staff throughout the school. It quickly liberates teachers and students from the stress of confrontational relationships, which frees up substantial teaching and learning time. It also provides social capacity to students, equipping them with social and relationship skills, intelligences and attitudes to succeed at school and throughout their lives.

Values-based Education IS British Values, PSHE and SMSC

Values-based Education (VbE) is truly inspirational; providing a structure for a positive ethos that impacts on the whole school community. It has a direct influence on the entire curriculum, and most specifically on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development, Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), and of course on the teaching of British Values.
