At Linthorpe Community Primary School we foster MAGICAL learning habits
Our passion for and commitment to developing children into life-long learners is rooted in exceptional behaviour for learning from the very early years onwards. We teach, model and promote a range of 'MAGICAL habits': learning behaviours which impact on everyday lessons and are transferrable to success in later life. Each letter of MAGICAL signifies a key learning characteristic and is represented by a famous mascot. These for voted in by our pupils during Linthorpe Democracy week. 
The MAGICAL learning habits are referred to in lessons and assemblies. Children are praised and rewarded for demonstrating the behaviours; particularly during 'Star Award Assemblies' where older children nominate their peers and articulate which element of MAGICAL they have been most impressed with.
