At Audlem St James CE we work on developing positive attitudes to learning in all our children. We do not accept thatour children cannot do things; instead, we prefer to think that they cannot do them YET (and that they will be able todo them in time).
We are actively aiming to teach not just content in our lessons but we are striving to encourage thepositive mind-sets and characteristics that we associate with people that are successful in life (and not just tests):resilience, curiosity, empathy, openness to experience, attentiveness, perseverance, self-control and tolerance ofdiverse opinions.
As this approach to teaching embeds itself we believe that we will be turning out children who are:academically agile, independent, resourceful, able to transfer skills to different situations, bold, brave and responsiveto feedback.
Essentially, children who are well equipped to be successful learners and successful in life.
