This half term we are focusing on self-belief. This is one of our six Etone Values that are integral to being an Etone Learner. Having self-belief is having the confidence to achieve our goals. All pupils have received an assembly on this value and how they can demonstrate this value in all areas of school life and beyond. We will be rewarding pupils who demonstrate this value – one member of each tutor group every week – with a certificate and House Points – as well as the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw. Please can you work with us to encourage our pupils to have self-belief and:
· Have confidence to achieve the goals that they set themselves
· Be resilient and not give up – try, try and try again – use their prior learning, exercise books, resrouces and peers to try to work out problems
· Try to learn from any mistakes and see them as a learning opportunity
· Respond to teacher feedback to be the best that they can be
As part of this, it is also important for pupils to show resilience – one of our key eight employability skills that we embed into all aspects of life at Etone to prepare pupils for their future destinations.
