Key Principles for Character Education

The key principles for character education at Wadhurst are:

  • Good education is good character education
    Character education is part of what our staff do naturally throughout their working practices.
  • Character is largely caught through role-modelling and emotional contagion
    Our culture and ethos are therefore central to achieving this.
  • A positive school culture facilitates the acquisition of good character
    Our culture matches our ethos as our vision is lived and upheld by all. Without this, our pupils would never be able to truly flourish.
  • Character education should be developed in partnership with parents and the wider school community
    Character education shouldn’t happen in isolation. Pupils need to be given varied experiences and the opportunity to put in to practice what they’ve learned within different contexts.
