Attitudes to Learning: The Clayesmore Compass
At Clayesmore, our fundamental aim is to develop pupil’s learning for the 21st Century. The development of a broad set of knowledge, skills, attitudes, work habits and character traits that are believed – by educators, researchers, university professors, employers and others to be vitally important to success in today’s world. We recognise the importance of equipping our pupils with the tools to become lifelong learners.
Clayesmore’s Attitudes to Learning is a pupil-centred initiative which promotes self-reflection, personal challenge and regular, purposeful discussion between the pupil, their teachers, tutor and parents.
We have chosen key attitudes we are keen to help our pupils develop: conscientiousness, curiosity, collaboration and courage for junior pupils from Reception to Year 5. We add consideration and creativity for older pupils in Years 6 to 8.
