This book aims to provide clear, accessible advice to primary school teachers and other education professionals on how to enhance character education provision. It covers core themes including what character education is, and what it is not; why character matters; and what the role of the classroom teacher is in building pupils' character.

The authors offer practical advice and resources for delivering vital character education provision, whether in dedicated lessons or as part of a whole school ethos. They cover, in detail, the theory of character education as well as advice and guidance about how this should be applied in practice in primary schools.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
