Henley Primary School

Class 4 Expectations

We expect pupils to take responsibility for own their learning in a variety of ways.  In practice, this means:

  • Packing their own bags, PE kits etc.
  • Ensuring they are organised for their  learning and have all the equipment/books/homework/medical needs  they require on the days they need them
  • Taking responsibility for their own belongings, both in the classroom and around the school
  • Settling to work quickly, quietly and in a focused way and demonstrating a positive learning attitude
  • Keeping to the agreed class rules
  • Being active listeners and participants during class teaching and in discussions or group work
  • Always being prepared to challenge themselves and being on the very edge of their comfort zone as this is where the real learning happens
  • Not worrying about making mistakes but to be a risk taker and realise that mistakes are a very necessary part of our learning experience
  • Always trying their best, persevering and striving to be the very best they can be
  • Striving to be independent in their learning by using teachers to facilitate their learning rather than depending on them

We also expect parents to support us as we endeavour to do the best for your child.  In practice, this means:

  • Supporting  your child to be independent; this will help them when they have to organise themselves and their belongings for high school
  • Listening to your child read every day and helping them practise their spellings
  • Encouraging your child to be as independent as they can when they complete their maths and project homework
  • Checking that homework is completed on time and to a high standard
  • Supporting us in having the highest expectations for your child in their learning outcomes
