Our School Vision
At Bosham Primary School, we inspire children to become resilient, independent, creative and emotionally intelligent learners.
We encourage our children to be curious, so they have a passion for learning alongside having high aspirations for what they can achieve. Our aim is for all children to leave us with the skills needed to be a successful life-long learner; with a portfolio of memorable experiences and an understanding of the world around them.
We have introduced Learning Skills as a way of helping children to develop metacognition. Metacognition is about understanding how we think and having a greater understanding of ourselves as learners. Studies show that children who are taught to use metacognition strategies are more resilient and more successful both in and out of school.
To develop as learners, children need to make the transition from, “I can’t…” to “How can I…”. To do that, they need to think about why they are stuck, what it is that is causing the frustration and what they need to do to move forward. Our learning skills will support the children in doing this.
