We are excited to share our news that we have invested in the Commando Joe's Curriculum. The primary aim of this exciting programme is to help develop essential life and character skills to young people. This links to our Trinity Ten Learning Behaviours.
Endorsed by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, one of the world's greatest explorers, the character education programme is designed to help children achieve their full potential.
Based on the lives of real-life adventurers and explorers like, Sir Ranulfph, Ed Stafford and Tim Peake, children are challenged with themed missions which they have to complete. This can include saving an endangered animal, collecting items for a trip to the jungle and crossing obstacle courses to save another team member!
The COJO Character Curriculum is based upon the following 4 principles -
1. Character development is a right for every child.
