Cultivating the 7Cs
Inspired by the book ‘Educating Ruby’ by Guy Claxton and Bill Lucas, our 7Cs are about more than just academic success.
It’s about helping our children cultivate innate character traits such as creativity and curiosity. We want them to leave school with an appetite to discover the world around them and the skills with which to do so.
The Seven Cs
Never stop asking questions. Ask “why?”, “how?” and “what if?” hundreds of times to start thousands of magical adventures.
You’re brilliant as you are. Believe in yourself. Be brave. Mistakes are part of the journey so don’t worry about them. Have a go.
Listen. With an open mind and heart. Share your ideas – they’re valuable. Communication is a dance and you’re learning the steps.
Celebrate our unique differences and strengths. Don’t leave anyone out. We can do astonishing things when we work together.
Don’t be afraid to think for yourself. Explore ideas (no matter how weird or wonderful). Let your imagination fly.
Keep going when things get tough. You won’t always succeed first time. Embrace the journey – you’ll look back and see how far you’ve come.
Pour passion and enthusiasm into your work. Take pride in the detail. Give yourself time. Do it with all your heart.
