Learning to Learn

We believe that engaging our children in ‘learning about learning’ enables them to develop a deeper understanding of themselves as learners and therefore equips them with a greater capacity to learn. Our school ethos and the positive relationships established within our school community promote the value of learning and create a desire for children to become Lifelong Learners. Below are some examples of the opportunities pupils have within school to develop their capacity as learners.
