The school is focused on developing and strengthening pupils’ behaviours for learning, such as resilience and perseverance, especially when tackling work that is difficult. Pupils are making good progress in developing the personal characteristics that will help to make them better learners. It is evident that they are becoming increasingly confident learners who enjoy school.
Research suggests that when children improve their learning behaviours, this skill set can improve both academic achievement and cognitive ability. If they are clear about how to behave, modelling such behaviours, then we have removed a barrier between them and the curriculum.
To address this we have an #Actives programme which promotes ways in which children can develop important lifelong skills. Children's successes are celebrated in a weekly celebration assembly and they receive rewards under these categories.
