Values & Attitudes

In the learning journey towards making a positive difference through creative learning and confident communicating, the school values the skills and attitudes of an effective learner as well as these concepts:


VALUES (RISE) and ATTITUDES (COPE)

In the learning journey towards making a positive difference through creative learning and confident communicating, the school values the skills andattitudes of an effective learner as well as these concepts:

RISE Acronym

  • Respect: Valuing self, others and environment with appropriate actions.
  • Integrity: Acting with honesty, transparency and responsibility.
  • Sustainability: Planning, acting and responding with an eye to the future.
  • Equity: positive action to ensure fairness of outcomes for each person.

 

Through their learning experiences the students will learn about:

  • What they and others value
  • The different things that are valued such as moral, social, cultural, aesthetic, and economic
  • What New Zealand’s cultural and institutional traditions value
  • What other groups and cultures value

 

Through their learning experiences students will develop their abilities to:

  • Express what they value
  • Explore with empathy what others value
  • Critically analyse what others value and subsequent actions
  • Discuss disagreements arising from differences from what other people value and negotiate solutions
  • Make ethical decisions and act on them

 

ATTITUDES

There are 4 key attitudes that we see empowering our students across the competencies, for life and learning.

COPE Acronym

  • Curiosity: Actively seeking, using and creating knowledge, asking questions and challenging ideas and information. This is the driving force of learning.
  • Open-mindedness. Willingness to review their own opinions, beliefs, thoughts and attitudes based on further information, and experiences.
  • Persistance: Pursuing questions, goals, ideas and learning towards a conclusion despite barriers and challenges.
  • Empathy: Willingness and ability to consider the needs, views, beliefs and situations of others

With the attitudes we recognise that there are no stages or depths of an attitude. A person is either demonstrating an attitude or not demonstrating an attitude.

  • On this basis our conversations with students will focus on the frequency and duration that the attitudes are being shown.
  • We will support our students to self-reflect on the frequency and duration that they demonstrate the attitudes  
  • We will support the students to gather anecdotal evidence from which they can make judgements regarding the frequency/duration that a student shows any given attitude. Teacher observation/evidence  will be part of making negotiated judgements to be shared with parents/care givers.
