“At Floreat Wandsworth Primary School, we have a strong focus upon supporting and nurturing our pupils’ character virtues. We believe that mastering character virtues is essential to success in later life and enriches children with the skills that they will need to flourish beyond their time at Floreat. We teach character through a taught vs. caught approach. In addition to a discrete Character curriculum, we have introduced measures to encourage our children’s demonstrations of character throughout the school day, through certificates and House Points.
Our experience of the ACE Quality Mark process has been highly positive. The assessment of our school’s approach to character was conducted in a highly nurturing and supportive way, with clear indications of how we can further refine this area of our curriculum. We are thoroughly looking forward to sharing our expertise and knowledge with other schools interested in getting involved in Character Education.”
