    Teaching Resources developed by The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues, University of Birmingham

    ‘Every single child deserves the best education possible, and we owe it to children everywhere to make sure that character is at the heart of that.’

    The Education Secretary, Nicky Morgan, 21st January 2016.

    Dear all,

    Teaching Character Through the Primary Curriculum is a programme of study developed for Year 6 pupils (10-11 year olds) to aid in their transition to secondary school. This programme takes an approach of teaching character through eight different curriculum subjects; each subject focuses on one primary, and several secondary character virtues. The programme allows teachers to be flexible, and can be taught throughout an inclusive school curriculum, any time in the academic year. It is recommended that all of the lessons are taught, so pupils have an understanding of all the virtues covered. The resources have been piloted and evaluated by different primary schools to ensure that they can be successfully administered within a primary school setting. The resources are available for you to start using below. They include 8 curriculum subjects with accompanying Teacher's Notes, Resources for Pupils and Power Point slides, as well as a Virtue Toolkit for each of the 8 virtues explored. You can download the whole pack for each subject using the 'Download Pack'button, or download all of the resources if you so choose.

    To accompany the launch of our new project is a corresponding blog article, looking at character within sports and its links to the PE aspect of the programme.

    Please use these resources as you see fit and let other primary practitioners know of their use.

    Thank you.
