  • It recognises the school’s commitment to high aspirations and to its culture of continuous improvement
  • It values the hard work that all staff engage in on a daily basis
  • It provides recognition of success to parents and the local community
  • It demonstrates the commitment to National Curriculum and OFSTED requirements to the provision for Spiritual, Social, Moral and Cultural education, Personal Social, Health and Relationships education, British Values and the development of Character in education

Aureus School officially became a Values-based School in June following our VBE Audit. Dr Neil Hawkes and Jane Hawkes spent a day with us auditing our provision.
