A Grimley and Holt Child
What is our intent? What do we want a Year 6 child at Grimley and Holt to be like?
They’re keen to learn, have plenty of self-confidence and they are HAPPY.
Their moral code is highly developed with a strong sense of justice. They are ‘comfortable in their own skin’, socially competent, less dependent on their parents and have developed strong friendships.
They’re articulate, better at handling their emotions, have the ability to empathise and are confident to take action when they feel something is wrong or unfair. They will have formed a part of our ‘buddy’ system and will have helped other children to enjoy school.
They have learnt a lot and covered all areas of the curriculum. They will also have played conkers, gone pond dipping and invented something amazing.
They have a strong set of academic skills which goes beyond the expectations of the National Curriculum objectives, having enhanced the way that they learn, as opposed to what they learn.
