A team of 13 students are buzzing with excitement after being appointed as ‘Value Ambassadors’.

The students at Priory Community School Academy in Worle, Weston-super-Mare, UK, applied and interviewed for the brand new role.

Their role is now to represent values and character across the school and in the wider community. 

Schools are encouraged to recognise, celebrate and nurture values and virtues and build a robust Character Education programme alongside their academic schemes.

PCSA is championing this with a student-led campaign to infuse values into everything that students do. 

Using the pastoral tutor programme, assemblies and lessons, the ambassadors aim to change the culture of the school for the better. 

They want every student to leave school as strong characters who are ready for the world and any challenge it might throw at them.

At their first celebratory meeting, one ambassador said that ambassadors are ‘symbols of our values’ and another recognised that they ‘have a big part to play in school’. 

They discussed how they want to ‘teach students about respect and fair treatment’ and ‘get people more engaged with values’.  

Sarah O’Gorman, Citizenship Coordinator at PCSA, said: “This is a unique opportunity for students who already embody our core values of respect, integrity and aspiration to lead the way for other students to follow.”
