Over March and April, this website will be undergoing some maintenance work, as we transition over to The Link Academy Trust.

Building Learning Power

We use Guy Claxton's Building Learning Power (or 'BLP') as a way to help provide our children with the skills they need to be independent successful learners. Our birds each represent one of the five Rs: Resilience, Relationships, Risk, Reflectiveness and Resourcefulness. Certificates are given out each week to celebrate the children who have demonstrated one (or more) of our Rs. 

Resourcefulness: The magpie gathers the best resources and uses these to help solve problems.


Reflectiveness: The owl spends time thinking and reflecting to solve problems and work things out.


Risk: The swallow is prepared to take a risk and also learn from the mistakes they make.


Resilience: The Woodpecker does not give up, even when things get tricky.

Relationships: The starling needs to have good relationships and work well as part of a team.
