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 Addison 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.
Through a pupil led project we have identified five core values which are displayed and discussed daily in all classes. These are: RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, PERSEVERANCE, HONESTY & FRIENDSHIP.
This is a two-minute humorous video to remind us that, 'values should be caught and not talked' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5Xf543kSg8
