Non-negotiables – high expectations EVERY time.

There are many skills our pupils need to master in order to meet the end of year expectations. This requires hard work and a great deal of effort. Our pupils and staff set very high standards for themselves.

In order to keep the pace of learning high, we set very clear expectations in every subject in every year group, but especially in writing and maths.pic

We set a minimum level of expectation for EVERY piece of work where children write and when they learn in maths – we call these our non-negotiables. For example, if the children are creating a piece of non-fiction writing in History – they must still have legible writing and use the correct grammar and punctuation.

You may want to adopt these as your minimum standard at home too? – especially if you help with the home learning. Click here to go to the school webpage where the maths and writing non-negotiables and a writing development document (explaining the headers) can be downloaded.
