What does it mean?

We have a Growth Mindset

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent are fixed traits and cannot be changed. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success- without effort. They’re wrong!

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work- brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have these qualities. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the world of education.

 

We respect the Rights of every child

A Unicef UK Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Children and young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day.

 

We respect Each other

At Greenacres, both adults and children show mutual respect. We have cooperative learning teams and partners who we work and learn with. We are polite and have good manners. We respect people from different backgrounds, who have joined us from different countries, who speak different languages and may have different faiths.

 

We value our Education

We know how lucky we are to have such a good education. We love learning and show good learning behaviour.

 

We actively conserve Nature

We understand how important it is to look after our school grounds, our local area and the planet we live on. We take part in local projects and enjoy learning outdoors during Forest Schools lessons and after school clubs.
