Glasllwch Primary School is a learning community where Thinking Skills lie at the heart of effective teaching and learning. We are committed to providing all children with the opportunity to develop thinking strategies across the curriculum. We encourage all children to think reflectively, critically and creatively about their learning and to demonstrate independent and cooperative learning skills. Our approach to learning generates high levels of achievement, and excitement and enthusiasm for learning.
Glasllwch Primary School values the views of all its members. Learning in our school is enhanced by exploring the thoughts and feelings of pupils within the school. Pupil Voice is embedded in all aspects of school life. We provide children with opportunities to contribute to school improvement because we believe listening to learners is fundamental to their wellbeing.
Our school aspires to enhance each child’s self-esteem; providing a safe and secure environment in which they feel confident to take risks and strive to reach their full potential. Through recognising and celebrating achievement, we encourage every child to view themselves as a successful individual.
We believe that engaging our children in ‘learning about learning’ enables them to develop a deeper understanding of themselves as learners and therefore equips them with a greater capacity to learn. Our school ethos and the positive relationships established within our school community promote the value of learning and create a desire for children to become Lifelong Learners.
