At Ravensthorpe, we aim for every child to be a 'High Performance Learner' and 'explore, succeed and soar' across the curriculum and beyond! To support our school achieve this aim, we are working with the High Performance Learning (HPL) organisation to drive our curriculum and work within our school community.

 Across our school, we are adopting these 7 principles which are underpinned by Values, Attitudes and Attributes (how we behave) and Advanced Cognitive Performance (how we think and learn). Please click on the links to find out more!

 At Ravensthorpe, we have thought about how we bring the HPL VAAs (Values, Attitudes and Attributes) and ACPs (Advanced Cognitive Performance Characteristics) to life for our children.

Staff will regularly 'tweet' about learning activities at school and how these activities link to VAAs and ACPs using hashtags.  Please follow us on Twitter @RavensthorpeP or read the 'tweets' on this website. 

Values, Attitudes and Attributes (VAAs - how we behave)

#empathetic  #concernedforsociety  #collaborative #confident

#hardworking  #practice #resilence #perseverance

 

 Advanced Cognitive Performance Characteristics (ACPs - how we think and learn)

#linking #imagination #bigpicturethinking #connections #alternativeperspectives

#analysing #problemsolving #logicalthinking #precision

 

We have also created animal characters to illustrate how high performing learners behave to our younger children. We have linked fictional characters from literature who personify the ACPs for our older children. PLease see below for more information and examples.
