Leadership of Character Education Report

Following a series of regional and national conferences connecting with over 400 school leaders, we are delighted to publish 'Leadership of Character Education - Developing Virtues and Celebrating Human Flourishing in Schools'

This report offers:

  • clear definition of what we mean by character education
  • theological reflection on the Christian inspiration for the leadership of character education, in the context of a range of other starting points, including virtue ethics;
  • consideration of the importance of leadership virtues lived out in action amongst staff and their impact on the effectiveness of character education;
  • analysis and application of a range of leadership models to support leaders in developing and embedding their approach;
  • provision of a suite of practical resources to empower school leaders in using the Church of England’s Vision for Education, Deeply Christian Serving the Common Good to inform and underpin their approach.
