School Curriculum Info

Skills for Learning, Life and Work 

We use 'Proud Clouds' to celebrate wider achievements in school but we have adapted these in session 2015-16 to encourage a more inclusive and focused approach. Pupils will be focusing on Skills for Learning, Life and Work this year. There are four categories for this so we have broken them down into the four terms:

Term One-Working Together (Click here to see examples of how they can earn a proud cloud)
Term Two-Enterprise (Click here to see examples of how they can earn a proud cloud)
Term Three-Problem Solving (Click here to see examples of how they earn a proud cloud)
Term Four-Leadership (Click here to see examples of how they earn a proud cloud)

Pupils will have an opportunity to suggest what each of the four areas mean to them and what they may look like in school and at home. These discussions will then form the basis of what Proud Clouds are rewarded for at each stage. Pupils will be able to earn a Bronze (5 house points), Silver (10 house points) or Gold (15 house points) Proud Cloud depending on the skill they have mastered. The whole school chart will be shared on the website when the classes have completed them so that parents can discuss them at home.

Please encourage your child to share skills they are developing out of school. We really enjoy hearing about them and they will be recorded at the back of the new Learning Journey Jotter.
