Curriculum

Character Education

At Acomb Primary, we pride ourselves on instilling Achievement, Aspiration, Community, Communication, Independence and Opportunity in everything we do. These 6 values are fundamental to the values and ethos of the school and are encouraged throughout our lessons. We recognise though that these character traits are not the only ones that children require to be successful in life and therefore educate our children on a variety of these throughout the year. This, we hope, ensures that when the children leave us in Year 6, they are well rounded individuals who are ready for their next step in education.

Each week, we focus on one particular character trait and encourage the use of this all week, celebrating those who have shown particular strengths in this by rewarding them at the end of the week with our 'Character Award'.
