Characteristics of Effective Learning

Characteristics of Effective Learning


The characteristics of effective learning underpin our pupils learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage. The ways in which they engage with others and their environment – playing and exploring active learning and creating and thinking critically – underpin learning and development across all areas and support the children to remain effective and motivated learners.  We make judgments about a child's demonstration of the Characteristics of Effective Learning at their particular age and whether or not the learning behaviours defined within these characteristics describe the child.
