Inspiring our children to flourish and enjoy 'Life in all its fullness' (John 10:10)

Empowering learners

We want to encourage our pupils to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour and to become independent learners by concentrating on building the following skills:



Absorption – completely concentrate.

Managing distractions – Take action to stop yourself from being distracted.

Noticing – look very carefully.

Perseverance – keep trying.



Questioning – Ask yourself and others to find out more and improve.

Making links – Link what you already know to other information.

Imagining – I wonder if...?

Reasoning – Consider if it is sensible and argue the idea.

Capitalising – Use everything around you (including people).



Planning – Think about what you are aiming to do and how.

Revising – Be flexible and change as new ideas emerge.

Distilling – Pull out the main parts to move you forward.

Meta-learning – Know how you learn best.



Interdependence – Know when to learn on your own or with others.

Collaboration – Work well together.

Empathy and Listening – Try to understand what they are really saying.

Imitation – use methods and ideas from others.
