Pride – Perseverance, Resilience, Independence, Distractions (managing), Explain (your learning)


We support and teach our children to be able to wait and work through difficulties, this can be with their mind, body, or emotions.


Through PSHE, the ethos of our interactive learning (Kagan), our curriculum and the nurturing environment of our school, we support our children in being able to bounce back from stress, challenge, tragedy, trauma or adversity. When our children are resilient, they are braver, more curious, more adaptable, and more able to extend their reach into the world. The great news is that resilience is something that can be nurtured in all children


From a child’s very first day at North Wingfield Primary and Nursery Academy, we support and guide our children to be independent. As they develop perseverance and resilience, they develop the ability to work through their tasks without relying on other people. They are able to make their own decision without just following others.


Children are very inquisitive about their peers. Children are supported and praised for paying attention to their own learning, managing distractions and choosing to ignore or moving away.​

Explain your learning.

We guide children to develop their metacognitive skills they are asked to tell their teacher or partner how they have completed their task. This might be explaining how they found the answer to a sum, or why they planned their writing.
