Values Based Education

"Truly excellent values newsletter.  Well done, brilliant leadership"

Parent comment after reading our Respect newsletter.

 

We are working together as a school community to embed a 'values based' focus to the curriculum.  Dr Neil Hawkes, the founder of Values Based Education, delivered a whole day's INSET training to the whole staff, governors and a group of parents in October 2014 and inspired everyone.  We then hosted parent workshops and assemblies so that as a community we created our own set of values.  The school has embarked upon a 2 year journey of deep exploration of these values, focusing on a specific one each month and building an 'ethical vocabulary' upon which to refer throughout each day - both at home and at school.

 

Each value is introduced in a Monday morning assembly and is then followed up by an activity in class.  We also send a values newsletter home.
