Character Building Days
Research suggests that enabling character traits can improve attainment, engagement and attendance, and can help drive equity and social mobility.
Character building days are whole school events, involving pupils from all year groups. On these days, pupils will be encouraged to challenge themselves, take risks and enjoy problem solving. Pupils will take on a variety of tasks, based on a theme, with results from the day celebrated by all. These events aim to build character, and contribute to the SMSC development in our pupils, and prepare them for opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in later life (Character education Framework 2019). They support the development of self-esteem, coping skills, motivation and self-regulation.
