Values & Learning Behaviours
At Stepney Park Primary School, we aim for our Personal Development curriculum to reflect the school’s vision and values. During the amalgamation and formation of our school, staff members identified three core values to guide the vision for our new school. These are: Respect, Resilience and Independence.
In consultation with school staff, we then identified six ‘learning behaviours’, linked to our values, that we aim to foster in children to support them on their journey to becoming life-long learners and positive members of society. The learning behaviours are:
Linked to our value of Respect: Empathy and Collaboration.
Linked to our value of Resilience: Trying new things and Ambition.
Linked to our value of Independence: Curiosity and Responsibility.
These learning behaviours are at the heart of our Personal Development curriculum: we have planned a wide range of experiences and opportunities for our children to foster these learning behaviours and ensure that their time at primary school is as enriching for their personal development as it is for their academic learning. This includes a programme of assemblies, special days, clubs, competitions, whole school celebrations, trips and more besides, in addition to our already broad curriculum offer.
Our learning behaviours are also a part of how we offer children feedback. Children are praised when they demonstrate our learning behaviours in lessons and around the school, possibly with one of our special postcards which they can take home.
To help children understand these learning behaviours and how they can show them, we have developed the following characters:
