"Values-based Education is an approach to teaching that works with values. It creates a strong learning environment that enhances academic attainment, and develops students' social and relationship skills that last throughout their lives." VbE website.
We introduced the concept of Values-base Education in September 2013 and haven't looked back. The whole school community was inspired by it's founder Dr Neil Hawkes and from the very start found that his teachings and philosophy complemented our Christian values and the teachings of Jesus.
We introduce a new value every month and together we explore readings and stories from a variety of sources. All the values are displayed in each classroom and outside on one of our notice boards so that everyone knows which particular value we are thinking about each month without forgetting the previous month's value.
