St Thomas' Catholic Primary School uses five learner dispositions to describe the habits and thinking of successful Active Learners. We foster opportunities for our students to be COLLABORATIVE, RESILIENT, REFLECTIVE, CREATIVE AND SELF-MANAGING. Teachers explicitly teach each of the dispositions and report on each child’s growth in these areas as part of the formal reporting process.
At St Thomas’ Catholic Primary School, all learners use the Assess Yourself Framework to progress towards achieving learning goals. This framework provides our learners with a common language to use when reflecting upon and articulating their learning journey.
The Assess Yourself Framework draws upon, and connects to, our Active Learner Dispositions, assisting our learners to form goals and reflect upon the next steps required in their learning journey.
