    Characteristics of Effective Learning 
The Characteristics of Effective Learning are an integral part of our curriculum and the provision that we provide. The Characteristics of Effective Learning are:

  • Playing and Exploring - Engagement
    * Active Learning - Motivation
    * Creative and Critical Thinking - Thinking



These characteristics and the areas of learning are all interconnected. The Characteristics of Effective Learning are behaviours that children use in order to learn. They are developed through their interactions with people and things. We value these skills as essential to our children to become effective learners. The Charcateristics of Effective Learning are closely linked with our school learning values.

These are:
* Collaboration
* Independence
* Perseverance
* Thinking
* Imagination
