Ivington C.E Primary School is a place where children’s confidence is nurtured in a
secure and happy environment, one where a strong sense of respect underpins all relationships.
Alongside our Christian Values sit our Golden Rules linked to Learning Behaviours.
Learning Behaviours are modelled and embedded across the school. Each class represents the
Learning Behaviours (also known as Growth Mindset in the older classes) in an age appropriate way.
We expect children at our school to become more independent learners by developing thinking
and learning skills, such as determination, curiosity, co-operation, respect and critical thinking.
We want the children to realise that their ability is not fixed or predetermined, but that it will
grow and develop with effort, application and perseverance. We teach the children skills that
will enable them to learn effectively and achieve well. The Learning Behaviours enable children
to achieve the standard of Greater Depth in the curriculum, which is directly linked to Bloom’s
Taxonomy. All children and staff understand and use Bloom’s Taxonomy to support learning.
Education at Ivington C.E Primary School is more than learning new skills and acquiring knowledge,
it is about developing qualities of mind that will enable young people to grow into resilient adults,
confident in who they are and what they believe. We aim to equip the children to face the challenges
that they will face in the wider world and to help them develop skills and attitudes so that they can
lead a happy life and reach their true potential.
