Positive Learning Behaviours at Holland House
As part of a review of our Behaviour Policy, we introduced The Learnosaurs to Holland House and with the help of the Learnosaurs we were able to develop a new Positive Behaviour Policy!
How we designed and implemented the Learnosaurs
Following consultation with children, parents, governors and staff, we identified different learning behaviours that encourage children to be independent, confident learners. We then created our own Learnosaurs to represent these positive learning behaviours.
Each Learnosaur has a set of attributes to support effective learning. By teaching children how to be good learners, and also reflective about how they have learnt, we are developing pupil independence and increasing levels of engagement.
Pupils are rewarded with stickers, and certificates if they have shown characteristics of one or more of The Learnosaurs. Each class has a Learnosaur 'wheel' (see below), which recognises and supports the development of good learning behaviours, and works in partnership with our positive behaviour policy.
We introduced the Resourcefulrex, Reflectadon, Perservereosaurus and the Reciprodactyl as the Learnosaurs to the children at at Holland House. Each Learnosaur has its own positive learning attributes and the children across the school learn these and then try and emulate their positive learning behaviours.
Article 28 (right to education)
Every child has the right to an education.
Primary education must be free and different forms of secondary education must be available to every child. Discipline in schools must respect children’s dignity and their rights. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.
Article 29 (goals of education)
Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the
full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.
