- An Attleborough Student Is
We believe that education is far more than just achieving a set of results.
We genuinely believe in helping parents and carers to educate the whole child and so we promote positive attitudes to learning and life and actively teach the attributes of Character Education including a 'Growth Mindset'.
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.
We want students to aspire to have this mindset. We want them to learn and to grow by being open to constructive criticims; to take critical feedback well and use it positively; to commit to engaging in every task and making progress; to take on new challenges; to push themselves outside of their comfort zone and to show resilience and perseverance in all their endeavours.
We overtly use the Character Education diagram around the Academy to show the attributes and skills that we want students to aspire to.
