We believe that our School culture and ethos play an important part in developing successful Character Education.
Character Education is integral to many aspects of our curriculum e.g. in how we encourage children to tackle problem solving, develop perseverance and stamina. It also forms a key thread in our PSHE programme and the Inspire Curriculum.
