Learning Values at Lanchester CFS

Lanchester CFS Curriculum Intent

Learning Values at Lanchester CFS


The 6 ‘R’s are an integral part of independent learning at Lanchester CFS.  All teachers and pupils use this language continually throughout the day.  Each class displays and uses the 6 ‘R’s.


Responsibility: We know that with rights, come responsibilities. We are taught to behave sensibly, care for our surroundings and for other people. We follow rules responsibly to keep ourselves and others safe.


Resilience: This is being able to cope when things go wrong, putting a brave face on things and trying again.


Reasoning: Thinking things through and making logical decisions. Considering ‘why’.


Reflection: Thinking carefully about other people’s feelings, or about what would happen if… or what could have been done differently.


Resourcefulness: Finding new solutions to problems, making own decisions.


Respect: Listening to and learning from other people with politeness, following rules and caring for people and property.
