Strengths-based learning

We use a 'strengths-based' teaching and learning approach to enhance student learning.  In our school every child is encouraged to:

  • identify their strengths
  • use their strengths (e.g. within class programmes, electives classes, clubs, music tuition and sports)
  • develop their strengths.

 

Our beliefs:

  • strengths-based learning links to learning dispositions such as motivation, engagement, self-belief and confidence
  • wellbeing accompanies student achievement
  • children who have regular opportunities to develop their strengths are more likely to flourish.

 

"Everyone at school, students and teachers have made me feel really happy about myself.  They make me shine and congratulate me when I've done well or even if I tried my hardest.' - from one of our students
