Values' are principles that act as guides to our behaviour and help us in our decision making. They are especially important in creating a positive, successful and happy school.
With the support of the whole school community we aim to raise our children into calm, happy, motivated individuals. We promote an educational philosophy based on valuing self, others and the environment. We encourage our children to be reflective so that that they can become effective learners and positive members of society. Our Values Education programme involves exploring 6 positive values throughout the school year.
Dr. Neil Hawkes, Founder of the International Values Education Trust (IVET), states that:
‘Values Education helps pupils to develop holistically, nurturing a secure sense of self, respect for self and others and supports the raising of academic standards’.
