Character Education in Primary Schools

Alongside academic attainment, children’s personal development must surely be at the heart of a school’s purpose. Within this category, we find so-called ‘character traits’ like honesty, kindness, resilience and creativity: but how do we teach such abstract ideas? How do we assess them? And how do we find space for this in our already-busy timetables?

  • Effective and engaging
  • Practical tips and strategies
  • Fully in line with the latest Ofsted and DfE thinking

About this course

A recent government report found that only 54% of schools are familiar with the term “character education”. How do you develop “soft” skills like honesty, respect, resilience or kindness? How do you create a systematic and rigorous “co-curriculum” that doesn’t divert time and energy from academic attainment? By attending this informative and engaging course you will:

  • Create a meaningful breakdown of ‘character’ to match your school values
  • Investigate how we can develop ‘character’ across the curriculum, and through exemplar characters in literature and real life
  • Explore a wide range of practical teaching approaches for common ‘character traits’


Audience:

  • Head teachers and SLT
  • SMSC and PSHE leaders
  • EYFS, KS1, KS2
