Character & Wellbeing
Character and Wellbeing at Harris Garrard Academy is taught across Key Stage 3. The purpose of Character and Wellbeing is to provide students with knowledge of additional ‘life-lessons’ which are not necessarily delivered discreetly elsewhere.
Students are provided with a series of lessons dedicated to the holistic development of our children, so they leave Harris Garrard not only as academics but as reflective, considered citizens. There are a number of principles which underpin the Character and Wellbeing curriculum. These include:
- To bring students into contact with the principles of ‘good character’ – morals, ethics, values and Harris Manners are all developed through the curriculum
- To provide contextual knowledge which enables learners to develop and build a good sense of identity and belonging
- To enable learners to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed at life in modern Britain including; personal, social, health and economic education; careers education; citizenship education; and relationships and sex education
- To enable learners to consider, understand and live up to their responsibilities towards themselves, their families, and society
- To continue to focus on the holistic development of learners within our academy.
