Value-based Education

 

Values are principles that guide behavior. At The Orchid School pupils are encouraged to model values and to give time for reflective practices. We believe that this empowers pupils to be effective learners and good citizens.\r\n\r\nValues-based Education provides our students with a dynamic compass at school and throughout the rest of their lives, strengthening their resilience and well-being. It nurtures the development of good character, deep thinking and altruistic behavior. The outcome of Value-based Education is the positive transformation of pupils and institutions – exactly what our world needs right now.\r\n\r\nOur Values-based education philosophy underpins our work to actively promote fundamental social values, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those from all faiths, backgrounds and cultures. A rounded programme of activities and events promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, enabling them to develop their own moral and ethical compass to guide what is right and what is wrong.\r\n\r\nOur Value-based curriculum teaches social and emotional learning skills that link cognitive neuroscience, positive psychology and mindfulness based on neuro-science. At The Orchid School, pupils learn about the brain, their emotions and the benefits of reflective practices resulting in self-regulation of behavior and the ability to mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic success.
