‘No Child Left Behind’ is the founding ethos of ‘Commando Joe’, a character education programme we have embedded throughout our school.
The programme focuses on the lives of real-life adventurers and explorers, for example: Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Tim Peake. Over the course of the academic year the children will learn about a different hero or heroine each term, within these lessons the children will participate in both practical and mental tasks based on their adventures. The lessons are delivered weekly by a trained Commando Joe specialist from the NUFC foundation.
The primary aim of the programme is to improve the educational outcomes for children and young people. Each lesson is carefully structured to enable children to develop life skills, character traits, attributes and behaviours which have a positive impact on their educational attainment, engagement, employability and well-being.
