Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

The 9 Habits

In order to build character and resilience into our children, families and staff, we are integrating the Oasis 9 Habits into our curriculum. 

By learning about what each of these characteristics looks and feels like, we are aiming to ensure that every single person at Aspinal becomes the very best version of who they can be. This will be a theme that runs through the whole of our curriculum, rather than a standalone piece of learning. There will be monthly themes in leadership meetings; these will then be cascaded to all staff in advance so that on the first of every month, we can launch the new habit in our classrooms, our assemblies and everybody will engage in this topic and the language and learning associated with it.

By being the very best version of ourselves that we can be, we expect every person to be able to make a valid contribution to society, know the difference between wrong and right, respect others  and their differing beliefs and generally be good citizens in the modern world, with high aspirations for a successful life. There are obvious links here with SMSC and British values.  

This is how we actually go about teaching the children about these values in school:
