This term, the staff at Becket Primary School are taking part in whole school training with Commando Joe's to develop a character curriculum for the pupils at Becket Primary School.
This Commando Joe's programme is progressive from Early Years through to Year 6. One of our main goals is to build the confidence of our pupils, as we believe that children with high self-esteem are better able to make difficult decisions under peer pressure, approach adults for support, and be self-sufficient in their learning. The programme develops this resilience through many activities, being part of a team, performing challenges or having a leadership role. The children will develop their sense of adventure and increase their confidence and independence by taking part in new and unfamiliar activities. These transferable skills are vital as they become ready for the next stage of their learning.
