Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills

Development of these skills helps to prepare students for life in the modern world and provides them with abilities employers say they are looking for.

They equip students with the knowledge that learning is for life and that they are making progress all the time as a complex and capable person.

These skills and awareness of them are taught in all subjects’ areas including enrichment and feature in extra-curricular opportunities, student leadership opportunities and lunch time activities.

From 2015 development in PLTs is to be assessed, shared on our recording system ‘go4schools’ and progress reported to parents in the end of year school report.

Students should be able to talk about how they use PLTs and how they store examples of the evidence of progress in their progress file.
