Building Character

At Hoole Church of England Primary School, we see Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE) as being at the centre of all that we do. The promotion of pupils’ personal development (which includes their social development) is a fundamental aspect of education and underpins all other learning. Our school environment and our school ethos  promote pupils’ self-esteem and emotional well-being and help them to form and maintain worthwhile and satisfying relationships, based on respect for themselves and for others, at home, at school, at work and in the community. We focus deeply on the Mental Health and Wellbeing of each individual child and support the development of building resilience on a daily basis.


The ability to bounce back or rather bounce forward when something doesn’t go accordingly or straightforwardly.
The ability to stay positive and keeping on going.

Being resilient and having the skills associated minimises the effect that negative situations have on children.

Being aware of and coping with our emotions
Controlling our impulses
Being optimistic
Finding solutions/problem solving
Being independent/believing in ourselves
Developing relationships


We have put together a handy, helpful guide for parents and carers to support building resilience at home.
