Secrets of Success


At Holy Cross, our core intent is that pupils develop resilience. We want them to be optimistic and to engage fully in all aspects of the curriculum; feeling proud of themselves and of their school and developing a secure sense of belonging.

We share six Secrets of Success which enable all pupils to become resilient learners. These are referenced in all learning activities and celebrated in our weekly Share and Praise Worship. They are:

  1. Don’t give up and push yourself
  2. Try new things
  3. Imagine
  4. Improve
  5. Understand others
  6. Concentrate

Our Head Teacher has created a scrapbook entitled, ‘Resilience Matters at Holy Cross’. The book is a collection of examples of how the curriculum at Holy Cross is aligned with the Resilience Framework.
