Character Teaching

Staff Expectations

Character can be both explicitly taught but also caught in building a positive ethos in school. Caught approaches to character education place importance on the quality relationships between students and staff within all school activities and emphasises the importance of teachers acting as positive role models for their students.

As form tutors, during registrations, our expectations are:

  • To uphold uniform standards, basic manners and courtesy,praise students’ values such as integrity, respect etc.

  • Delivery of one PSHCE session each week linked to character from the specified programme.

  • Monitoring tutor groups academic mentoring around our core values.
  • Supporting form groups in delivering one assembly per year linked to a given value.
  • Role-modelling at all times our values such as respecting students by not shouting in their face.

As subject teachers, during lessons, our expectations are:

  • To promote the three core values and use praise points to acknowledge students’ participation of these.

  • Role-modelling at all times our values such as respecting students by not shouting in their face.

  • Taking opportunities to praise students’ values, particularly the intellectual and performance ones which encourage greater independent learning.
  • Deliver explicit character lessons (KS3 lessons only) which has the focussed value incorporated into the lesson, both implicitly and explicitly.
  • Take other opportunities to highlight the different values which naturally link with subject lessons and where possible take time to discuss and debate them within the subject context.

As an adult around the school, our expectations are:

  • Setting and upholding uniform standards, basic manners and courtesy, and praise students’ values such as respect.
  • Actively supervise students and encourage students to make the right choices through use of the language of character.
  • Proactively monitor the environment and encourage students to make the right choices e.g. not drop litter, no graffiti etc – show respect to the environment.
  • Sanction any negative language/behaviour that goes against our core values.
  • Role-model at all times our values such as respecting students by not shouting in their face.
