6Rs - Characteristics of Learning


Our aim is to ensure that our teaching and learning enable children to flourish in an environment which is friendly, welcoming, well-organised and caring. Our aim is to ensure that all children are able to maximise their learning potential to explore a rich and varied curriculum full of opportunities to explore and develop knowledge, understanding and skills which are transferable across all areas of learning. We want our children to leave us having acquired academic, social and life skills ready for the next stage in their lives.



Our values are based on our 6R Characteristics of Learning:

  • Responsible Penguin
  • Reflective Owl
  • Resourceful Squirrel 
  • Resilient Spider
  • Relationship Dolphin
  • Risk Taker Hedgehog


Following our 6R Characteristics Progression Document (see below), we ensure children are taught the key skills to the values above and model how these look in action. They then use and apply these values in all aspects of their learning around school.
