Character Education

What is Character Education?

Character education is the term used to describe the teaching of children in a manner that will help them develop as moral, well-mannered, kind, non-bullying, healthy, respectful, successful, diverse and honest individuals so that they can get along in society. It is the deliberate effort to develop virtues and characteristics to mould and develop an individual.  Curriculum areas such as PSHE, RSE, SEAL and RE address many of these concepts, as well as Eastfield’s core values of: Care, Diversity, Opportunity, Pride, Resilience and Respect.
