St Peter’s is a Values–based school
Values-based Education underpins the life and work of our school community; it promotes a way of being that values the self, others and the environment. Research shows the positive effects on pupils, both socially and academically, when educators model and teach about universal, positive human values. The purpose of adopting VbE is to inspire our children to adopt positive values in their lives so that they can be the best people that they can be and actively demonstrate the values in their daily lives, thereby helping to create a sustainable world.
We run a 22 month rolling program (2 years minus August) and each month a new Value is launched in assembly. This is then followed up in class; class assemblies and around the school. Each month’s Value is highlighted on the school website and on the week ahead so that families can continue the focus at home. Our Values are visible all around the school as a constant reminder to us all.
