What is Values-based Education?
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.
The positive learning environment is achieved through the positive values modeled 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 (VbE) empowers educational settings to underpin their life and curriculum with universal positive human values such as respect, integrity, honesty and compassion. It’s a framework that enables pupils to become thinking, self-responsible and caring citizens. VbE offers a practical way to bring about positive change for the whole school to improve standards and well-being. It’s a collaborative and co-operative approach that encourages self-responsibility and positive relationships.
