Character Curriculum

Character Curriculum

This fortnight's trait is....




In our school, we know that it is important to embrace ALL people, celebrating the differences between us. We show that we recognise this in many different ways...


- Knowing it is important that everyone is included in our learning and our games.


- Understanding that everyone is different but each of us belong.





We are all born

In a different way

How we look

And what we say.


From different countries

Around the world

Of different genders:

Boys and girls.


Of many sizes

And colours too,

The things we like

And the things we do.


If everyone
Were the same you see

You wouldn’t be you,

And I wouldn’t be me! 

The Present

It is important not to judge based on appearance. Someone may be different but this does mean they are any less able. Embrace our differences - this is what makes us unique!

Last half term, we celebrated Inclusion.

Check out the amazing poem 3LM created for their assembly!

Every fortnight, our Into Film club watches a film linked to the Trait of the Fortnight. The children discuss the film and their own thoughts about it. Recently, Into Film club watched a film called 'Wadja' about a young girl growing up in Saudi Arabia. The children thought about how this inspirational girl developed self-awareness through her experiences in the film. Klara (5HD) wrote the winning review, check it out below!

What is Character Curriculum?

'Evidence suggests that character matters hugely for a variety of later life outcomes. It can help boost educational attainment and motivation to learn among young people, as well as facilitating positive later life outcomes, such as good mental well-being, positive health behaviours, and more success when finding career paths.'


As a school, we are committing to engage in and develop a sustainable and effective 'Character Curriculum' that launched school wide in September 2016. Throughout the school year we aim to provide a range of opportunities for all the children to build skills in areas such as courage, self-awareness, resilience and altruism.
