At Stanion C.E (Aided) Primary School we firmly believe that children should be given the opportunity to become independent learners and enjoy all aspects of school life. We encourage the children to take responsibility for their learning and empower them by providing opportunities for 'Learn to Learn' skills across the curriculum. These skills are broken up into six key areas:
- Self Manager
- Effective Participators
- Resourceful Thinker
- Reflective Learner
- Independent Enquirer
- Team Worker
The children are encouraged to reflect on their learning and assess themselves against the six areas. They are asked to think about what they do well and what they could improve upon.
Each week two children from each class are given the 'Headteacher's Award' certificate for demonstrating these skills. Mrs Hankins is our lead teacher in this area.
