School Values - The Six Pillars of Character

What is 'character'?

A person of character….

  • is a good person, someone to look up to and admire
  • knows the difference between right and wrong and tries to do what is right
  • sets a good example for everyone
  • makes the world a better place.

At Marden Lodge we follow The Six Pillars of Character, a framework for teaching good character which is composed of six ethical values (characteristics):

  • Trustworthiness
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Fairness
  • Caring
  • Citizenship.

Each of the six character traits are used to help instill a positive learning environment for the children and staff and a “culture of kindness” making Marden Lodge a safe environment for ALL to learn.



Our stars of the week , awarded every Friday , are chosen because they have gone over and above to demonstrate our school values.
