Our Wonderful Learners

6th September 2019

Following on from our successful LORIC – Skills for Life focus, we have been working on how we can develop skills that will support our children in their school life and beyond. Our school staff has worked with a learning consultant to develop OWL (Our Wonderful Learners). This is a set of strategies that children can draw upon in different learning situations, with prompts and resources to support them in being successful. Keep an eye on Parent App where you will be notified of your child’s OWL achievement stars!

Effective Participants

Creative Thinkers
