Learning Skills

We look for pupils to learn knowledge, skills and values within school. All three parts take place within lessons.

Knowledge refers to learning concepts, principles and information regarding a particular subject(s) by a person through books, media, encyclopaedia, academic institutions and other sources.

Skill refers to the ability to develop knowledge and understanding, or using information and applying it in a context, and real-life situation to get a desired result.

Values are the ways of interacting and behaving by the person within a community. Indeed, the extent of the use of the values can define the community itself.



There are six superhero learning skills that pupils are asked to consider and develop in their learning. Teachers plan these in to lessons.

Team worker To be good team workers, you should be able to work confidently with others, adapt to different situations and take responsibility for your own actions.
