Aims and Beliefs
Our belief that ‘Better Never Stops’ is encapsulated in our aim to ensure that all pupils enjoy their learning, so that they make excellent progress and become confident and mature young people. The foundation of Learnability to underpin the curriculum supports our children during lessons, and helps to give them the skills to become effective learners. The use of Learnability in the classroom is common place: children as young as five use the same language as adults to describe the learning that is happening. Whilst Learnability supports the learning habits we aspire to, Stephen Covey’s seven habits give our pupils the ability to become interdependent young people, ready to support and help their peers. It is wonderful to hear young children in classrooms, and outside at play, discussing ‘emotional bank accounts’ and dealing with minor disputes by listening and discussing.
