The VbE method:
Each school setting understands the need to underpin all aspects of its culture, curriculum and life with a deep understanding of an ethical vocabulary, based on a community agreed set of positive human values, such as respect, love, tolerance, trust, justice and empathy. Such a vocabulary develops ethical intelligence, empowering learners to live their lives using a new universal narrative.
