Statistics only tell a small part of the story of VbE. Below are charts showing a small selection of outcomes following the introduction of VbE.


Academic Attainment

Improvement in GCSE results at Stamford Welland Academy in the year of introduction of Values-based Education.


 Improvement in academic performance at Chantry Primary School since the commencement of Values-based Education.



Behavioural Impact

Improvements in behaviour are reported throughout VbE schools. We have not formalised the impact into statistically analysed charts. But Bath Spa University carried out research into a similar field to VbE, Emotion Coaching. Below are the statistically significant changes they found after the first year of coaching, relative to the year prior to the coaching.

Attainment Gap

 VbE provides a learning environment that supports narrowing the attainment gap between children of different backgrounds, bu supporting pupils to become self-motivated, with secure self-esteem regardless of their backgrounds. The Meads Primary School in Luton, a VbE hub school, was cited by OFSTED as providing exceptional progress in this area.

 Richard Jenkins, the school's head teacher, describes his multi-faceted approach. He explains that VbE played a fundamental part in creating the conditions that allowed the schools initiative to succeed. He believes this success can be replicated in other schools.
