Values are principles that guide behaviour. At Fielding adults are encouraged to model values and to give time for reflective practices. We believe that this empowers individuals to be effective learners and good citizens.
Our Values-based education philosophy underpins our work to actively promote fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those from all faiths, backgrounds and cultures. A rounded programme of assemblies 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.
Our MindUp curriculum teaches social and emotional learning skills that link cognitive neuroscience, positive psychology and mindful awareness training based on neuro-science. Pupils learn about the brain, their emotions and the benefits of reflective practices resulting in self-regulation of behaviour and the ability to mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic success.

Currently there are 22 main values at Fielding. We focus on one value every month over a 2 year cycle. Each value has several reflection points which enables us all to share and understand a common values vocabulary.
