The Star Awards Character Education programme for primary schools is an all-in-one, tried-and-tested teaching resource and awards scheme developed by Character Education experts Geoff Smith and Shona Pye in partnership with Havering School Improvement Services (HSIS).
Based loosely on the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, the Star Awards scheme included in the programme gives children the opportunity to be recognised for demonstrating resilience, citizenship, teamwork and problem solving, British Values, moral compass, confidence and self-worth.
Written by experienced headteacher and leading Character Education experts Geoff Smith and Shona Pye and trialled in Havering Schools, you can be confident that the support and resources included in Character Education will be easy-to-use and highly effective.
