At Simon Balle All-through School the teaching of values is at the core of everything we do.

Values are principles that drive behaviour, influence our actions and attitudes and become our framework for living. They influence our relationship with ourselves and others around us.

At Simon Balle, children develop a secure sense of self and become more empowered to take responsibility for their own learning. The teaching of values at our school underpins our teaching and learning, and provides an environment which prepares our pupils to be confident and happy citizens. It promotes effective learning and underpins the continuous improvement of personal, social, moral and economic wellbeing. It is an investment in individual capability and self-responsibility.

Students learn what values are, how to recognise them, and how people react to them, equipping them with invaluable social skills and emotional intelligence.

Respectful relationships based around our exploration of values is crucial for the free thinking and curiosity of our learners.

Our community focus provides resilient citizens who make a difference locally, nationally and internationally.

The wide range of positive human values encouraged in our school include patience, respect, fairness, tolerance, respect, compassion and collaboration.
