PSHE Association welcomes character fund announcement

The PSHE Association is pleased at the announcement of funding by the DfE to support development of character education in schools as part its character fund grants scheme.

The funding will allow the Association to develop and pilot a PSHE character curriculum, from key stages 1 to 4 in 10 schools. The project will be independently evaluated to measure its impact on the development of positive character attributes through the curriculum.

The materials developed will then be disseminated nationally via our network of 9,000 practitioners and specifically targeted at schools new to character education.

We are currently assessing applications we've had from schools to take part in this pilot and will announce further details about this soon.
