Centre Honorary Fellow to open schools to deliver ‘knowledge and virtue’ curriculum 7th April 2014 Character Education Jubilee Centre

James O’Shaughnessy, an Honorary Fellow in the Jubilee Centre for Character and Values and former chief policy adviser to David Cameron, is Managing Director of Floreat Education and is working to bring the evidence and practice of character and virtue development into UK state schools.  Floreat Education is due to open a string of free schools in West London, with two primary schools scheduled to open in September 2015 that will deliver a curriculum based on ‘knowledge and virtue’.  In an article on TES Connect, the plans of Floreat Education, including the ‘Virtue and Knowledge’ curriculum, and the recent calls by Parliament for character and virtue to be more explicit in schools and in particular, the needs of the primary sector, are explored.
