Our Learning Dispositions
Each week we learn about and celebrate one of our five learning dispositions. These are characteristics that help pupils become lifelong learners. We explore what the disposition looks like through stories and events in weekly assemblies. At the end of each week, we celebrate with pupils, staff and parents in a Super Learner assembly in which one pupil in each class receives a certificate and badge for showing the learning disposition.
Pupils show curiosity by asking questions, learning more outside of school and exploring and experimenting when learning.
Our behaviour values are based on the acronym SMART. We believe that being SMART helps children understand how to make positive behaviour choices and be ready to learn.
This doesn't mean always being happy. We strive for a positive outlook on challenges and learning.
Mind to kind
We believe being kind to others in words, gestures and actions is vital to create a school in which all of our pupils thrive.
We show we are listening to each other by actively joining in with discussions, making eye contact and asking questions.
We are aspirational and will always seek to challenge ourselves and try new things.
Think to talk (and talk to think!)
We consider what we say before we say it and we use talk to share, organise and challenge our thoughts.
