““We are delighted to have been awarded the kitemark plus award as it reinforces the message that character education is such an important part of primary education. Our community have celebrated this award with us and we are now more determined than ever to further develop what we do and look forward to sharing it with other institutions.”
Tony Bradshaw, Headteacher
“The shared language around character that is used between pupils, teachers and parents seems effortless at Colmore Junior School. But this is testament to the extensive involvement of the whole school community in the development of its 7 principles, which underpin its character provision. These principles are consistently integrated across core curriculum, an innovative reward system that effectively involves parents, and an expansive and inclusive co-curricular offer. Pupils of all ages eloquently talk about good character, and confidently use a broad vocabulary relating to virtues and values. Colmore Junior School is without a doubt an inspiring School of Character.”
Tom Haigh, ACE CEO and Kitemark Assessor.
