At St Mary's, we use the Commando Joe’s character programme to help young people find their place, feel capable and ultimately flourish in a challenging world.
The COJO Character Curriculum is based upon the following 4 principles - 1. Character development is a right for every child 2. Character education will empower young people 3. Character will inform the ethos, direction of learning and culture of the school 4. Character should be developed in partnership with staff, pupils and parents
The ultimate aim of character learning is the development of good sense and capacity to ‘think and choose intelligently’ between alternatives and it is with this aim in mind that the COJO Character Curriculum is based. Encouraging children to think differently and more deeply about their actions will be a significant element of the programme.
Come and see a mission in action to find out more about our character learning.
