Values-based Education

 

Values-based schools seek to promote an educational philosophy based on valuing self, others and the environment through the consideration of an ethical values vocabulary.

 

Values are principles that guide behaviour. At Park Junior School adults are encouraged to model values and to give time for reflective practices. We believe that this empowers individuals to be effective learners and good citizens.

Our Values-based education philosophy underpins our work to actively promote fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those from all faiths, backgrounds and cultures.  A rounded programme of assemblies and events promote children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, enabling them to develop their own moral and ethical compass to guide what is right and what is wrong.

 

Values for 2017-2018

 

Currently we have seven values at Park Junior School with 'Respect' being the key value that the other six follow.

 

We focus on one value each half term learning to understand what the value looks like, how we can model its use in our everyday lives and reflect upon its impact on us and the community around us. 

 

The Values being covered in 2017-2018 are as follows:
