The 3Ps at FPS
The 3 Ps on display...
Prepared; Productive; Proving Progress
As well as our school motto - 'Success comes through personal effort' - the school also uses the three Ps when talking about learning and life. It is part of our common language and something that permeates all areas of school life. You will see the Ps in every classroom, and hear and read them constantly when you visit the school.
We try and instil in our children the importance of being prepared for everything we are going to be learning about, being productive in all that we undertake, and proving we have made progress from our starting point. Using the Three Ps helps children to understand their own responsibility for being learners, and that learning happens everywhere - in class, on the playground, in assemblies, at home, and the more prepared and productive they are with their learning, the more progress they will make.
In the Infant Department, children are introduced to the ideas of being "Ready To Learn", "Working Hard" and "Making Progress". This means that the idea of the 3 Ps permeates through our whole school, and over time, children are equipped with the attributes they need to be successful learners.
The message is everywhere!
