Our Learning Behaviours

 Here at school, 'Plumpton' really is the centre of everything we do! We use the Growth Mindset philosophy to help teach the skills of life-long learning. These are recognised in celebration assemblies, identifying those across the school who have demonstrated excellent Learning Behaviours. We encourage everyone to:

Persevere - Don't ever give up, even when things get tough.

Learn from your mistakes - When things go wrong you can learn how improve for next time.

Understand - Be curious and inquisitive, constantly striving to improve understanding.

(Be) Mindful - Take a step back, reflect on your learning, see how far you've come already, be proud of what you've achieved.

Partner up - Talk partners help us learn best. There's no 'I' in 'team'.

Take risks - You don't know what you're capable of unless you push the boundaries.

Own it! - Give 100% in everything you do, even if it's not your strength.

Never be afraid to try - The greatest journeys start with a single step.
