Schools become calm, happy and purposeful places. The focus on a relational culture nurtures emotional security, which mean they run more smoothly, allowing staff to spend less time managing behaviour and more time on teaching and learning.

Here are some of the benefits, which many schools experience after introducing VbE.

  • More harmonious relationships between staff and learners, and amongst staff
  • Happier, more self-confident students and staff
  • More motivated, responsible and self-led learners
  • Improved mental wellbeing
  • Better educational outcomes
  • Learners who understand the importance of values in their lives
  • Improved resilience of staff and learners
  • Fewer student absences
  • Fewer exclusions
  • Less staff stress/absences
  • Lower staff turnover
  • Less time spent on discipline
  • Greater parental and community engagement
  • Narrowed attainment gap between disadvantaged learners and their peers
  • Greater and spontaneous collaboration between students
