School leaders, teachers, governors and people working in fields aligned with VbE came together for a day of inspiration! 


The 'ValuesMeet' session gave several schools the opportunity to share their brilliant values practice with everyone else: 

 Jane Tailby - Middle Barton School, Hannah Wilson - Aureus School, Richard Jenkins - The Meads School, Hannah Holgate - Coltishall School, Dan Hiblin & Dom Brister - Stamford Welland Academy and Cori Bateman - Chantry Primary Academy.

Finally the launch of 'The Inner Curriculum' (TIC) by Dr Neil Hawkes and Jane Hawkes. IMG 7532

Based on neuroscience, TIC provides schools with specific methodologies to support staff and pupils' emotional health, resilience and wellbeing.

VbE Professional Development Training will now include 'The Inner Curriculum' as a feature.


The day was topped and tailed by CEO Bridget Knight, with Sue Webb as the MC and the other VbE consultants helping to make everything run smoothly.

A fantastic day was had by all! The VbE Member Schools community is about schools supporting and inspiring each other and VbE providing the means for the means for this crucial work to be shared - with the world!
