Routes to Resillience is about recognising, understanding and developing the character traits that make us unique and then using these ‘character muscles’ to allow us to be the best version of ourselves. At the heart of character education is creating a culture in and out of school where pupils are given every opportunity to rehearse and strengthen their sense of themselves. At Martinshaw, our character muscles are embedded within our school values. Our pupils use their character muscles to develop their understanding of our values. Our curriculum is designed to offer opportunities for pupils to strengthen character muscles within their learning.
