I can’t do it….yet!

At St Joseph’s we encourage children to develop a mind- set that is open to challenge and not afraid of failure.

We reward our children for working hard and behaving well. We also encourage and reward children who show they can:

  • Be curious
  • Concentrate
  • Be independent
  • Be imaginative
  • Persevere
  • Make links
  • Have a go
  • Be proud
  • Be decisive

Ultimately, we are encouraging children not to think “I can’t do it” when they come across something that is difficult, but “I can’t do it yet !”

With support from our staff, parents, families and the children themselves to develop the above characteristics, we will be preparing our pupils for success.

If you would like any further information, or tips for how you can help to develop these characteristics in your child, please speak to their class teacher.
