The 7Rs of Learning

It's All About Learning...

At Woodfield, we want children to develop a love of learning. We want them to become excited, independent learners who are curious and have the skills they need to take their learning forwards to answer their own questions as they grow older. 

In order to help children to develop their levels of independence, we use our 7Rs of Learning. These are skills that we feel are essential for children and adults to become effective, confident learners. The 7Rs of Learning are:

Ready- Being mentally, emotionally and physically ready to learn. Taking part and understanding the importance of seeking help if we are not yet ready to learn.

Resourceful - Being able to work in different ways using resources effectively and calling on different ways of learning as appropriate.

Responsible - Being independent and self-regulated; understanding the importance of learning and doing everything possible to ensure that we, and others, are all able to learn well at all times.

Risk taking - Being confident to try new activities or ways of working, even when it feels scary, so that we can learn new things.

Reasoning - Being able to think through a problem or task, draw upon prior experiences to think of possible ways forward and be ready to try alternatives out if needed.

Resilient - Being able to engage with our learning – try every activity, work hard and know how to work through difficulties when the going gets tough.

Reflective - Being able to become more self-aware and analytical about our learning.


These 7Rs are displayed prominently throughout the school - in the entrance, the school hall, the headteacher's office, the deputy headteacher's office and every classroom. This shows the importance we place on the 7Rs as useful tools for learning for all members of the school community. 


By using the values and the 7Rs through everything we do, we aim to ensure that all adults and children are enabled to become great team members and are able to achieve our motto:


Be kind      Be hardworking      Be part of the team      Be Woodfield!


For more information about the 7Rs please take a look at the document below. This document can be found around the school and tells you a little more about what these look like in every day life around school.
