Morpeth First School

Reflections on the Kitemark Experience

“We are thrilled and delighted to be awarded the Kitemark for Character Education, and as a school community extremely proud of what we have achieved in such a short space of time. Our vision, for all pupils and staff to feel ‘Treasured, Courageous and Empowered’, runs like a golden thread through everything that happens in school. We aim to provide as many opportunities as possible for the children to explore and embed our character values into their own lives, in order for them to become flourishing and fulfilled members of society.”

Assessor Feedback

“Highly effective and sustainable character education should be bedded in, not bolted on. This principle is clearly evident at Morpeth First school, where character is woven into the very fabric of the school. As a result, it permeates all aspects of school life. This is a remarkable achievement considering the limited time since the launch of the school’s values, and is testament to the strong visionary leadership, collaborative spirit of the staff team, and sheer dedication that has gone into implementing a whole-school character strategy.”
