Learner Agency incorporates our whole school approach to our teaching philosophy of building active, empowered and independent learners.  This starts with teaching children in their ‘Learning Zone’, with tasks designed to push children out of their comfort zone and challenging them at an appropriate ability level.  Learner Agency promotes children to be actively involved in their learning, through peer and self-assessment, setting learning goals and reflecting on how well they have met success criteria in every lesson.

Learner Agency promotes the notion that ‘mistakes’ are part of the learning process and when teachers provide timely and meaningful feedback to students, this informs and supports children to make learning progress and growth.
