Learning Behaviours


At Market Drayton Junior School we want children to become successful learners. To help them develop the necessary skills the children are introduced to eight learning behaviours. During our Friday assembly, the children are awarded certificates, which focus on the learning behaviour they have demonstrated during their lessons.


In addition, the children are taught that:


Successful people feel good about:

•How hard they have tried.

•Who they are and what they spend their time doing.

•The choices they have in their lives.


Here are some things everyone should know…
