The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues will be hosting a one-day conference on the new Ofsted Framework.

The New Ofsted Framework states that schools have a duty to support the character development of their pupils. This is a major turning point for character education in England; all of England’s 22,000 state schools will be asked to explicitly demonstrate how they develop the character of their pupils. This event aims to shed light on the policy and practice of character education and will be appropriate for PSHE leads and practitioners with a specific interest in character education.

Speakers will include:

  • Professor James Arthur, Director of Education at the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues
  • Dr. Tom Harrison
  • Ofsted’s National Lead for PSHE and for Citizenship Roary Pownall.

There will also be a panel discussion with  Bec Tigue, Head of School with particular responsibility for Enrichment and Character Education at the University of Birmingham School, Gary Lewis, Executive Head of Kings Langley Secondary School and Chair of the Association for Character Education, Carole Jones, Headteacher of Yeading Primary School and Damien Kearns, Principal of Nishkam High School.

The Registration fee is £10.00. Lunch is included. Spaces are limited so it is advised that anyone interested in attending this event register as soon as possible.
