Character - The 5Rs

Pupils’ character is developed through the school’s ‘5Rs’. Pupils learn about respect, relationships, responsibility, reflection and resilience. Pupils are happy and safe as they largely live these values. There is an extensive programme in place to support their mental health and well-being'.

Our School Character Values - The 5Rs: Who we are

Participation in the wide range of activities and opportunities allows students to develop and demonstrate our school character values; The 5Rs.

The 5Rs represent our school character values of Respect, Relationships, Responsibility, Reflection & Resilience.


We use The 5Rs and HHEx to support character development and education.
