We are big believers at Stopsley that: ‘Attitude is a small thing that makes a big difference’.
When children have the correct attitude to learning, they always excel. We regularly talk to the children about having the right attitude and we always try to praise effort and attitude in class, rather than results. We do a lot of work, both in class and in assembly, about having the right learning behaviour. We talk with the children about the different learning muscles that we have and encourage them to have a growth mindset – never saying, ‘I can’t do this’… but always saying, ‘I can’t do this YET’.
Our school's Leadership Team are currently working on introducing six key Learning Behaviours across the school. Watch this space as something special is coming soon. There are going to be some really exciting intitiatives happening which will all be about the children improving their Learning Behaviours during classtime.
