Attitudes for Learning

Learning Attitudes at RJS

At Ripley Junior School, we believe that our children need to take a positive, proactive approach to their learning. Believing in ourselves is one of the most important things to make sure that we succeed – we need to know what we did well, how we can improve and how to be successful.


To help our children become lifelong learners, we have 6 key learning attitude ‘Maples’ – meet them below and find out more…

Hi! I’m ‘More than just me!’ I help you think about the ways in which you can work collaboratively to improve your learning, while also supporting others.






I’m ‘Dare to be different’. I’m here to make you think about different ways you can improve your learning: you can think outside the box, try something a little different or even try things that other people aren’t doing to see if it helps you reach an even greater goal!




Hello, I’m ‘Aiming high’. I always want you to challenge and push yourself to reach even greater highs in your learning.








'How well did I do?' I always ask you to reflect on your learning, to think about what worked well and plan for next steps to help you make amazing progress. In lessons and at the end, always ask yourself, ‘How well did I do?’.





I’m ‘Thinking for myself’. There’s times when you need to think outside the box and do something that will help you get out of the learning dip. It could be that you think back to another lesson and try a different method, or even go and use a resource to achieve your learning objective.




I can do it! If you find something tricky, keep positive and believe in yourself! I want you to always keep a positive, growth mind set when trying new and daunting things. Don’t give up, think ‘I can do it!’.
