Character Education

Continuing this year: Commando Joe character education programme.

Endorsed by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the “world’s greatest living explorer”, this unique character education curriculum is designed to ensure every child reaches their full potential.

Based on the lives of real-life adventurers and explorers, such as Sir Ranulph and Tim Peake, we have designed a complete package of lessons and online support that is ready to go in your school today and form part of your curriculum.

Pupils learn about a different hero or heroine over each term, with practical and mental tasks to complete based on their adventures.

Designed with educationalists, each lesson is structured to give pupils the character tools and values they need to be successful in life such as resilience, determination, empathy, and courage.

Lessons are supported with “field report” films featuring Commando Joe, developed by a Bafta-winning animation company. Plus, a whole website of dedicated resources, support, celebration and reflection materials tools.
