Our Values

New Perspectives School firmly believes in embedding good values in all of our pupils to prepare them to be a valued member of the community.

Our values are; Honesty, Compassion, Respect Resilience and Kindness


Honesty helps in developing good attributes like kindness, discipline, truthfulness, moral integrity and more. Lying, cheating, lack of trust, steal, greed and other immoral attributes have no part in Honesty. Honest people are sincere, trustworthy and loyal, throughout their life

We teach our pupil that honesty really is the best policy. Being responsible for their own actions builds character, builds trust within other and creates a foundation of trust that others can rely on.


Compassion is an empathetic understanding of a person’s feelings. Compassion is when you relate to someone’s situation, and you want to help them. You see someone in trouble, and you feel like pitching in.

We teach our pupils compassion by supporting them to understand others beliefs and life choices and helping them to connect with others, mend and build relationships and move forward while fostering emotional intelligence and wellbeing.


Treating someone with respect means: • showing regard for their abilities and worth • valuing their feelings and their views, even if you don’t necessarily agree with them • accepting them on an equal basis and giving them the same consideration you would expect for yourself.

We teach our pupils to be respectful to others and respect others beliefs, values and life choices.


Resilience is the ability to move through and grow from difficult times. It’s a skill you develop over time from the lessons and experiences you absorb as you grow up and face challenges.

We teach our pupils to be resilient by putting them into scenarios where they need to be resilient, such as rock climbing, Community Meeting contributions and off site visits.


Kindness is choosing to do something that helps others or yourself, motivated by genuine warm feelings.. Kindness, or doing good, often means putting other people’s needs before our own. It could be by giving up our seat on a bus to someone who might need it more, or offering to make a cup of tea for someone at work. 

We celebrate kindness and pupils who complete an act of kindness are given a paper heart to put onto our kindness tree.
