Pioneer Learning Trust

Pursuing Excellence and Equity

Values Based Education

Our Trust is a values driven organisation and all of our schools are values based schools.  Values based approaches ensure that our whole organisation shares an ethical vocabulary and, at all levels, values drive our behaviours.

VbE 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 wellbeing.

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