Christ Church Traits/Skills

At Christ Church everyone was involved in deciding upon the traits and skills that we would like our children to develop as they move through school, ready for the ‘Real World’. Many are linked to our ‘Core Values’ and the Christian ethos of our school. All have been woven in to the Creative Curriculum, through the topics taught, discrete subject teaching and additional ‘Amazing Adventures’ and special days that have been planned. These are called our ‘Golden threads’.

 

These are the traits/skills:

  • Be confident and able to communicate well with others
  • Use ICT confidently
  • Be expressive and creative thinkers and doers
  • Show perseverance when faced with a problem
  • Respect others
  • Have an enquiring mind
  • Be independent
  • Be able to adapt to change
  • Have a love of the world around them and understand sustainability
  • Have aspiration and ambition
  • Be ready to learn and have a love of learning
  • Understand their place in the wider world
  • Be able to work well with others as part of a team
  • Be able to justify their choices and reason
  • Be able to evaluate their own and others work and behaviours
  • Have financial/Enterprise capability and manage money

Amazing Adventures

We also have an 'Amazing Adventures list' as part of our Creative Curriculum.

Each child will be given a special book that will follow them through school. The book will be a visual journey of their time at ChristChurch and be a special keepsake of memorable experiences that they can treasure. Some of the experiences will develop the ‘traits’ that we as a school community wish the children to have as they continue their journey to high school.
