Personal Learning Planning

altAs part of the Curriculum for Excellence, children are encouraged to take greater responsibility for their own learning and for the choices they make.   Personal Learning Planning is a key part of this process, which we have developed through "All About Me" books and the use of online Learning Journals which allow parents to access their children's learning at any time.   All children are involved in recording their own learning in the form of pictures, photos, writing and their individual learning goals.  The Nursery staff make observations and assess the children's progress continuously and the children get a great sense of achievement as these accomplishments are acknowledged in their journals. There will be opportunities each term for your child to share his/her learning with you at TEAM (Talk Entirely About Me) sessions.

Feeding back to parents

Your child's learning goals and progress will be recorded in his/her online Learning Journal, but there are also Parent Consultation opportunities in October/November and May/June which offer the chance to discuss your child's progress with their key worker.  Visual records of the children's activities (photos, projects, artwork) will also be on display throughout the year in the cloakroom, in the main room and on the external noticeboard.
