Our curriculum is designed to enable learners to develop their character – including their resilience, confidence and independence and help them know how to keep physically and mentally healthy.
We believe that, through adopting the Commando Joe Character Curriculum, we have developed a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged, the knowledge and
cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
Through following the cross-curricular links, our Character Curriculum ensures that children are gaining all the necessary skills they need to be successful learners, whilst also learning the skills set out in the National Curriculum.
As Bandura, 2000 explains, ‘confidence is learnt, not inherited’ and it is this confidence that we must harness to help children achieve within the classroom.
We believe that building the confidence of our children before they leave is of utmost importance: children with high self-esteem are better able to make difficult decisions under peer pressure, approach adults for support, and be self-sufficient in their learning. We believe that our curriculum develops this resilience through many activities; including being part of the team, performing challenges or having a leadership role.
