At Shoreditch Park we know that having a positive learning disposition is as important as a strong academic foundation. Therefore, we are teaching our children to embrace learning with excitement and enthusiasm so they are ready to take on challenges without fear of failure.

A positive learning disposition is what we want for every child at Shoreditch Park; the ability to face challenges and make progress. We believe every child has the ability to achieve this. Our children ASPIRE towards their goals.

ASPIRE stands for:

Achievement - We want our pupils to develop high aspirations and set themselves challenging goals. We feel it is important to instil the confidence and determination to achieve these goals.

A - Article 29: Every child has the right to develop their personality, talents, mental and physical abilities to their fullest potential.

Self-awareness - We encourage our pupils to know themselves better; both their strengths and weaknesses in order to identify where they should celebrate success and where they need to strive to develop further.

S - Article 31: Every child has the right to rest and leisure, engage in play and recreational activities and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.

Pride - We encourage our children to develop a sense of pride in themselves. This means being punctual, attending school every day, taking pride in their uniform and appearance, presenting their work to high standards and having pride in their behaviour.

P - Article 28: Every child has the right to an education.

Inclusion - We aim to help children understand that everyone has the right and the capacity to achieve no matter the challenges they may face. This is the belief that every child can succeed.

I - Article 23: A child with a disability has the right to enjoy a full and decent life.

Respect - We want our pupils to understand that respect is not just shown to other people but also to themselves, the wider community and our environment. It is about being polite and courteous but also about developing moral principles and sticking to them.

R - Article 2: All children are entitled to the rights set out in the convention. and Article 3: In all actions concerning children, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.

Enquiry - This is about being ambitious learners who are not afraid to ask questions and to steer their own learning journey. We help children to develop into active learners who are engaged and proactive.

E - Article 14: A child has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.
