Values Education Newsletter 2008

At the heart of any successful community... 2 Dear Colleague, We are delighted to commend to you this special edition of our Values Education Newsletter. It features the innovative work of a number of Secondary Schools that are developing a values-based approach to the curriculum. Increasingly, secondary schools are seeing the benefits of such an holistic approach. As you may be aware, there is growing research evidence of the academic and social success of values-based schools (Lovat & Toomey, 2007).

Benefits of Values-based schools include improved:

  • school ethos that support quality teaching
  • standards
  • behaviour, confidence and self-esteem of pupils
  • relationships at all levels of the organisation
  • listening, speech and language skills
  • self-awareness, self discipline and self control
  • staff morale.
