Behaviour for Learning

Our staff have agreed a set of Learning Behaviours for our school; these are taught and applied across the whole school, although the expectations are changed for each class as we want all our learners to succeed. We want the children to become more independent learners by developing thinking and learning skills such as determination, curiosity, cooperation and critical thinking. We want the children to realise that their ability is not fixed or predetermined, but that it can grow and develop with effort, application and perseverance. We want to teach the children skills that will enable them to learn effectively and achieve well.

Our seven learning behaviours are: Keeping Going, Risk Taker, Respect, Motivated and Engaged, Taking Responsibility, Team Player and Aiming High. Animal mascots represent each of the learning behaviours.

Below are the expectations for each class:

Year 1
Year 2
Year 3
Year 4
Year 5
Year 6

We regularly celebrate the achievement of our children. Please click here for details.

Once they have demonstrated a learning behaviour, children in Years 1 – 6 receive a sticker depicting the animal that represents the learning behaviour. When they have one sticker for each learning behaviour they will be awarded their large badge. The green person will be added to the badge after two of each learning behaviour stickers have been earnt and 20 stickers; the silver person will be awarded for three of each and up to 40 stickers or 50 stickers in total. The final gold person on the emblem will be awarded after 75 stickers.
