Discovering Together

Our Learning

At Stanton St Quintin Primary School we believe that learning is a partnership. This is partnership between children, staff, parents and indeed the local and wider community.

We aim to put our children at the centre of their own learning and place great emphasis on nurturing skills and attitudes such as resourcefulness, resilience and co-operation. Encouraging children to take responsibility for their own learning, to be involved as far as possible in reviewing the way they learn, and to reflect on how they learn, including  what helps them learn and what makes it difficult for them to learn.

At Stanton St Quintin Primary School we use Learning Powers which positively reinforce behaviours that encompass all learning.

  • Pearl – for respect and honesty

  • Diamond - being responsible and independent for our learning and ourselves

  • Ruby – supporting others

  • Emerald - being courageous and sticking with it even when it gets tough

  • Sapphire – keeping focussed

  • Amethyst – co-operating well with a partner

  • Topaz – working well in a big group

These Learning Powers also form the basis of our school's Behaviour Policy.
