Personal Learning Goals

Children should be taught in such a way that they develop the personal qualities of:

 

· Enquiry

· Adaptability

· Resilience

· Morality

· Communication

· Thoughtfulness

· Cooperation

· Respect

 

Efforts towards achieving these goals should be reflected in the whole curriculum and in all other aspects of school life. To a large extent, they are assumed in the subject goals so the following personal goals are, in effect, largely a summary of the personal outcomes of children’s learning.

 

By their nature, the personal goals are not age-specific. They apply to children – and adults – of all ages.
