Learning Review

Learning Review – Thursday 26 November & Friday 27 November 2015

The Learning Review will take on a new focus this year linked to the development of a core set of competencies for all our students. The Winston competencies are a range of skills that we believe will enable your son or daughter to become a more effective learner at school, will help them in the world of work and give them the life skills to be successful as an adult. The Winston competencies are as follows:

  • Resilience
  • Creativity
  • Independence
  • Communication
  • Critical Analysis
  • Collaboration
  • Organisation
  • Enquiry

The Learning Review meeting will focus on which of these competencies each student possesses as a strength and which ones they could develop. Over the course of the next two weeks the students will work with their tutor to complete the Learning Review booklet, The booklet will enable the students to identify their strengths linked to the competencies, but also recognise the skills where they need to make an improvement.

We would like parents to actively contribute to the discussion at the Learning Review meeting. A parent’s sheet outlining the competencies is available here  for you to review the key aspects of each competency, which we hope will enable you to embark on a fruitful skills discussion with your son or daughter at home.

Parents View Survey

We always welcome the views of parents and carers regarding the educational experience your son or daughter receives at The Winston Churchill School. A new parent/carer questionnaire has been created this term to provide you with the opportunity to feedback to us your views about the school and how we might further improve the quality of education being delivered. If you haven't already done so and you would like to contribute, please log into frog and click on the Parent View survey button to submit your views.
