Our Character Education curriculum recognises that a pupil’s physical and emotional well-being is crucial in helping them to flourish in life, enjoy their education and support their transition into work and further learning. Its aim is two-fold:
- To provide knowledge which promotes an understanding of how to live well, confidently and how to lead a healthy and happy life
- To develop pupils’ capacity to assume responsibility for themselves and the society in which they live
The curriculum encompasses all aspects of PSHE, SMSC, citizenship and our own distinct philosophy programme. The Character Education curriculum is taught within PSHE lessons, Think and Thrive sessions in form periods and philosophy lessons. It is further enhanced by whole school events and assemblies and complements our academic curriculum which also provides pupils with the opportunity to explore and appreciate a wider perspective within which they can develop the skills necessary to make wise decisions as they grow towards adulthood.
