This Character Education Evaluation Handbook for Schools provides a practical introduction to the evaluation of character education in primary and secondary schools. It:
- Provides advice, guidance and tools to enable schools to implement the principles and practice of self-evaluation to enhance and improve their character education provision;
- Is intended to be a source of inspiration that schools should adapt to their own context;
- Is based on the premise that by using varied forms of self-evaluation teachers can develop a holistic and formative picture of their school’s character-education profile; and
- Is designed to support the recent movement in schools to self-evaluate their own practice. School-led approaches to self-evaluation are now commonplace in most schools, including the Ofsted framework whereby inspectors often use the outcomes from self-evaluation as the starting point for their inspections.
The Handbook is made up of an introduction and four sections. The Introduction is available below:
