Independent Learners: A Whole School Approach

mediumblue

Summary

A look at the experiences of Kippax Greenfield Primary School, near Leeds, where teachers allow the pupils to encourage and shape the way they learn.

Though staff at Kippax operate within the framework of the National Curriculum, they deliver it in an unusual way. In this programme, we see pupils learn about light and dark through a process of discovery and enquiry, prompted by their own "brain shower".

Year 1 teacher and deputy head Kirsty Beresford talks frankly about how independent learning has transformed the way she teaches and plans lessons, describing herself as a facilitator rather than a teacher.
