We recognise that to succeed and excel in further education and adult life, a purely content based curriculum is not fit for purpose. Our children need the skills and characteristics to lead their own learning, inspire themselves to progress and have confidence to collaborate with their peers and wider society.
Consequently, during all lessons taught – alongside the learning objective – will be the Independent Learner Skills that are being developed and embedded in the children during that lesson. These are vital ‘life-skills’ that we believe all children need to succeed.
During every lesson, the teacher and children will decide which of the skills they will be using or developing and this will be displayed next to the learning objective. Creating a symbiosis between the learning and life-skills.
