Great Learners

Great Learners Overview

Our common goal is for our students to reach their potential. At Glyn school we believe that the best way to achieve this is to support our students to become Great Learners. 

What is a Great Learner?

  1. Great Learners are independent and can self-regulate their learning by knowing what works. They can plan and organise their time and materials and stay motivated without teachers or Parents and Carers having to work hard for them. 
  2. Great Learners are exam ready because they are well prepared, with lots of time to lower stress so they can perform at their best and feel proud of their achievements. 
  3. Great Learners have a deep knowledge and understanding of the subjects they study. They enjoy and develop a lifelong love of learning. 

Therefore, the gold standard of Glyn School’s curriculum is our students’ ability to self-regulate. Self-regulation is the ability to manage our own behaviour and aspects of our learning. It is the determining factor in students’ success, leading to significant additional learning gains, which increase as students get older. 

Please click on the picture below to view our interactive L&T 7 Principles:

At Glyn School, we understand that we cannot teach our students to be independent through student-led, self-directed learning. Our students need to be directly and explicitly taught about their own thinking and be shown and guided to use tools to learn effectively and independently. Only once our students have been guided to be sufficiently proficient, can their teachers fade. 

In the academic year 2020-21 we are launching the Great Learners programme. Every Half Term Tutors, teachers and students will focus on one of our Learning and Teaching 7 Principles. Students, Parents and Carers can access and use the resources in each of the sections below as the year goes on. 

  1.  Desirable Difficulty
  2. Impactful Feedback
  3. I do, we do, you do
  4. Responsive Teaching 
  5. Independent Practise
  6. Language and Literacy
  7. Positive Climate - underpins all school life, both in and outside of the classroom.  More can be found on this principle under the Behaviour and Expectations webpage.

Over the last few years, teachers at Glyn School have been using recent educational research into how we learn. This has, in turn, changed how we teach. We want to share our learning about this model of learning and teaching with our students, so that they can choose and use effective learning strategies. For more information on how students can become Great Learners please see this digitised document.
