Our Term 4 Learning Value

18th Feb 2021

Self-belief is about:

  • trusting your abilities
  • setting yourself challenging goals
  • gaining confidence

The following words come to mind when we think of self-belief:

  • courage
  • determination
  • spirit
  • assurance
  • tenacity
  • faith
  • confidence
  • strength of mind


What does self-belief look like to you?

  • you can trust your abilities
  • you can set yourself challenging goals
  • you have confidence in yourself


If you have self-belief what do you realise?

  • you can reach your potential if you believe in yourself
  • you should set more challenging goals to help stay motivated
  • gaining confidence gives you the strength to carry on – even when it’s really hard


How can you can show self-belief?

  • having a positive and determined mind set
  • setting challenging goals and having the courage to try (and keep trying) to achieve them
  • really believing that you can reach your potential

During Term 4, the children will try to demonstrate this value and gain the class and/or individual awards.
