Learning Principles

Our Learning Principles form our school aims and are based upon the shared understanding that learning is most effective when:

  1. Students are healthy, caring and have the self-confidence to learn from their mistakes, the perspectives of others and form their own opinions.
  2. The learning environments and educational resources that students use are accessible, stimulate curiosity and embrace the dynamic possibilities of digital technologies.
  3. Students explicitly understand learning intentions and success criteria.
  4. Students are critical thinkers and construct their own knowledge and understanding through an inquiry-based approach.
  5. Curriculum content is meaningful to the student and leads to interdisciplinary and conceptual understanding.
  6. Thinking is visible and students collaborate effectively and respectfully with their peers and others.
  7. Students explore and apply a variety of strategies to organise and approach their learning.
  8. Students receive effective feedback based upon pre-set criteria and are intrinsically motivated to learn.
  9. There is a broad and balanced curriculum through which students can experience success in a variety of different ways.
  10. Education and the ethos of the school are valued and encouraged in the family home.
