Values Based Education


Our Approach


Being a values-based school we seek to promote an educational philosophy based on valuing self, others and the environment through, the consideration of an ethical values vocabulary (principles that guide behaviour), as the basis of good educational practice.  This approach encourages adults to model values and to give time for reflective practices that empowers individuals to be effective learners and good citizens.


Our values underpin our behaviour.  Developing a sense of mutual respect for others, honesty and a willingness to take responsibility for your own actions underpins our approach to behaviour. 


There are 5 values at Addison.  We focus on one value every half term.  Each value has a number of reflection points which enables us to share and understand a common values vocabulary. 


Autumn 1Responsibility
Autumn 2Friendship
Spring 1Perseverance
Spring 2Honesty
Summer 1Respect
         Summer 2         Revision of the 5 values



To make these values more accessible to our pupils we have created avatars for each value.  We completed a school project to design what each character looks like and the names have been selected by our pupils.
