‘Every child has the right to learn in a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment.’
Responsibility – Children will learn self-regulation, including the promotion of a positive, growth mindset and how to manage strong emotions and impulses, identifying how and when to access appropriate support.
Resilience – Children will learn to recognise and manage peer influence and perceived social norms, including the need for peer approval, self-motivation, perseverance, and adaptability.
Readiness – Children will learn self-organisation, time-management, and skills for their future learning, including active listening, teamwork, negotiation, self-advocacy, leadership, and presentation skills, enhancing their prospects in society.
Respect – Children will learn to respect themselves and the rights, values, and opinions of others, respecting and valuing diversity and using these skills to build and maintain healthy relationships of all kinds.
Our intention is for all children to value learning through discussion of issues that are important, not only to society, but to them on a personal level. We develop children’s confidence to express their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. Children will be able to make links between different areas of learning as they progress through a spiral curriculum that builds on learning from reception through to year 6. Children will have the confidence to explain their learning experiences coherently.
