Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills

Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) are generic skills that are essential to life, learning and work. PLTS have a significant impact on a person’s ability to make a confident contribution, both within and outside of their learning/working environment. In wanting to develop children’s learning behaviours we are focusing on the six PLTS skills of: independence, creativity, reflection, team work, self-management and participation. The aim is for these to become an integral part of our curriculum in the future. They are currently explored and celebrated in assemblies as well as being taught discreetly.
