Route 2 Resilience

Character Education at Outwoods Edge

Character Education is a fundamental part of our curriculum. We believe that developing the 'whole child' and children leaving us as well-rounded individuals who demonstrate a range of positive character strengths is a very important part of primary education.

Last year, we took part in the 'Route to Resilience' project, which is an evidence-based and practical approach to supporting schools and families in their work developing the emotional wellbeing and resilience of children and young people.​ We developed a list of those characteristics we felt were the most important to teach (we found this very hard - there are so many!) and these are taught and celebrated through assemblies, lessons and our weekly 'Pupil of the Week' celebrations.
