At Boughton Primary, we believe that the development of pupils' character will have the biggest impact on their ability to be lifelong learners.
By this, we mean that, if children are taught to be resilient, polite, confident and courageous, they will tackle any situation they face as a learner, both within the school environment and beyond.
We have 36 Character Strengths that we have introduced at Boughton. The list was developed during a series of training days and staff meetings, agreed as being the essential qualities of a lifelong learner.
As a staff team, we recognise that we need to model these strengths, as well as teaching them.
