Our vision is for every child to become the best that they can and to develop the skills, attitudes and
confidence to be an active citizen in an ever-changing world.
To be an active citizen in an ever-changing world we want each child to be;
To be an active learner with a 'growth mindset', we want each child to develop ' learning muscles'
(see Learning muscle information below.
Laughing, Learning, Caring and Succeeding for Life
We aim to be a friendly and welcoming school:
The children are introduced to eight Learning Muscles during their time at Faringdon Infant School. These are the learning attitudes required to be successful learners with a 'can do' mind-set. The characters and the learning muscles they represent are introduced through assemblies, stories and in class. Children are celebrated in various ways when they demonstrate the learning attitudes at school.
There are different characters attached to each Learning Muscle in Nursery the children are introduced to:
Cooperation - Andy Ant
Curiosity - Maggie Meerkat
Have a go - Mo the Cheetah
In Foundation the children continue to develop the Learning Muscles they have met before and a further two Learning Muscles are introduced:
Raj the Robot- Don't give up
Enjoy Learning - Monty the Monkey
In Key Stage 1 the children are introduced to the final Learning Muscles to complete our 'can do' mind set.
Concentration - Olga Owl
Imagination - Daisy Dinosaur
Keep growing - George the Giant
The children enjoy making links between the characters and their learning.
