Values Based Education

As part of the development of Values Based Education in our Prep Department we ran a CPD event led by Dr Neil Hawkes.

We invited the following schools to get involved: The Downley School, Brill C of E School, Great Kingshill School, Widmer End, Hughenden Junior School

Aims

Values Based Education empowers educational settings to underpin their life and curriculum with universal positive human values such as respect, integrity, honesty and compassion.

The outcome of developing such an ethical vocabulary is ethical intelligence, which Dr. Neil Hawkes argues is the most important intelligence for the sustainability of our world.

The ethical vocabulary is the foundation of a new universal narrative through which all human beings, irrespective of culture; religion or ethnicity can communicate, thereby establishing trust and well being.

The outcome of Values-based Education is self-leadership, which enables each individual to work towards fulfilling their wonderful potential.
