Approaches to Teaching and Learning

A+ R A-

St. Patrick’s ‘Learner Skills’

‘Learner Skills’ are a fundamental part of our school life. How the children learn is just as important as what they learn. We understand that meta-cognition and self-regulation has high levels of impact on the children’s progress. The expectation in our school is that all children are provided with high quality learning experiences in which they can practise these skills, leading to consistently high levels of pupil engagement and achievement. We aim to give the children the skills they require to become effective lifelong learners, and foster a ‘growth mind-set’ where the children are taught that success in learning can be achieved through effort and persistence.
