Empowering Learning

Empowering Learning


Empowering learning is a programme implemented throughout school that allows children to take greater ownership of their learning and development through actively encouraging them to develop as independent learners. Alongside the curriculum staff model and children are taught effective learning behaviours to support their development. Empowering learning is split into six areas which are:


  • Self manager
  • Effective participator
  • Resourceful thinker
  • Reflective learner
  • Independent enquirer
  • Team worker


These six areas are differentiated by each year group and provide the children with objectives to achieve.

We believe that all children can benefit academically and personally from the empowering learning programme as it actively encourages children to utilise each area to support their development.
