PHRP Personal Values Model for Schools

People Management

Values are the guiding principles for an individual and an organisation. Values provide a purpose and identify what we care about. Values influence actions, behaviours and decisions. The PHRP Personal Values Model sets out nine core values linked to Teachers’ Standards, together with defined behaviours for individuals and organisations to aspire to; ultimately creating a high performing organisation.


The model illustrates how the values enable what a school does, how it is done and most importantly why it is done; to improve outcomes for young people.


Each of the values is defined, has identified behaviours and is supported by examples of work evidence relevant to different roles in school, so colleagues can demonstrate how they model the values.


Personal values and behaviours set out:

  • how we do things

  • what we say and how we say it

  • how we treat our colleagues and stakeholders


The aim is for the values and identified behaviours to become an integral part of day to day school life. Defined values provide clarity and focus by identifying how we can all achieve excellence.

The PHRP Values Model can be used to support your recruitment and selection activity, for managing performance and as part of restructuring processes.
