Character Curriculum



Character education is more than a subject: it’s learning to be a good person and a positive contributor to society. 


At Haydn we promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.  We plan a range of activities which build resilience, teach empathy and promote respect and tolerance.

In order to develop a set of values, principles, beliefs and lasting memories which they use to inform their perspectives on life and their behaviour, at Haydn Primary School every pupil will have the opportunity to…
