This year we have introduced Skills Builder across the school with the aim of embedding essential skills across the curriculum.
The Skills Builder Partnership believe that all children should thrive both in the classroom and beyond it.
Children need to be skilled in communication, creative problem solving, self-management and collaboration. These skills are essential for success; and to truly equip children for the future, we must start building these skills from Primary age. The eight essential skills listed by Skills Builder are:
Our goal for Skills Builder is that children develop, apply and transfer the essential skills, in any given context, by:
- practising and building the skills so that they have a high level of competency;
- having opportunities to make links with further education and the world of work; and
- valuing the essential skills across the school's curriculum.
“We focus on building essential skills to enable lifelong success so that one day, all students are equipped with the skills, experiences and aspirations to succeed.” Skills Builder
