Great Learning Behaviour.

We are very proud of how the children's learning behaviour is developing and proud to be able to share the following comments from our School Improvement Officer who visited last week:

Walking around the school, there was a calm and welcoming atmosphere with children being engaged in their learning and demonstrating good learning behaviours. Children who were spoken to were happy to discuss their work and could talk with confidence about what they were doing.The school is tidy and well presented and reflects high expectations of all. Books looked at were well presented and reflected high expectations and pride in children's work.

This pleasing behaviour is partly due to high and consistent expectations from all staff, but is also due to the work which we are putting in to helping the children to be calm and ready to learn.

Here are two examples:

  • every child has leant a way to calm him or herself if s/he is getting over-excited or upset. (See picture).
  • initiatives such as the skipping workshops have helped the children to be active and engaging in positive play at break times so that when they come in to lessons they are relaxed and ready to learn.

We look forward to sharing our work on mindfulness with you soon-we will keep you informed.
