Behaviour for learning
For our policies on Behaviour and Anti-bullying please click this link
Everybody within the school community deserves to be valued and treated with dignity, love and respect. Our core understanding is that we 'protect with love all that God has given us' (Pope Francis 2013).
Using a Growth Mindset and Characteristics of Effective Learning!
We actively encourage our community to understand the characteristics of effective learning and how to use a growth-mindset. At the start of the year we spend time learning about our brains and how to approach learning. We have worked, as a staff, to use evidence informed practice to support our understanding of how children learn best.
We have certificates and awards to celebrate our learning. Please click this link.
We have a pupil profile of 16 Virtues and Values (see image above) which we encourage in our learners. More information on our pupil profile can by found by clicking this link.
Our Pupil Profile awards are given to children who demonstrate these characteristics.
“I ask all people of goodwill to help build a culture of encounter, solidarity and peace.”
Pope Francis, November 2014
Becoming a restorative school
We are a restorative school. This approach works well with our ethos. Here is a short video explaining Restorative Practice.
The image below is taken from our relationships and behaviours policy and explains how we use restorative practice in our school.
