Character must also be grounded in positive values such as kindness, generosity, fairness, tolerance and integrity.</p><p>The 5 Foundations for Building Character announced on 7 February by my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education are sport, creativity, performing, volunteering and membership, and the world of work.
