Home > Resources > Character Strengths from Jenny Fox Eades
The Character Strengths programme is a whole school approach to character development and emotional and mental well-being.

Developed by teacher's and children, there are 25 strengths to focus on, each one as important as the next. The resources in this range are designed to support you whilst implementing Character Strengths into your class and school.

There are books to help you plan strengths assemblies, activity cards to give you lesson plan ideas, stickers to reward children for showing the different strengths and signs to put inside and outside your school to build familiarity amongst your children. The Character Strengths can be embedded into every aspect of the curriculum to enhance learning and raise standards in your school.
