Character education can be broadly described as an approach to developing a set of values, attitudes, skills and behaviours that are thought to support young people's development and contribute to their success in school and adult life.
Character Education in this school:
Ensures building a set of positive personal traits, dispositions and virtues that informs pupils’ motivation and guides their conduct so that they flourish in our society.

So that pupils are:
· High in self-efficacy and self-belief.
· Highly motivated and tenacious, driven internally, and show persistence.
