StJV Learning and Teaching Strategies Health Well Being: GIRFEC & SHANARRI

Learning & Teaching Strategies:

Our recently developed (January 2018) Learning And Teaching Toolkit: Core Strategies Cards, bringing consistency in practice across the school. These have been developed in consultation with our Staff and Pupil Council, based upon best practice in education. Influences include Shirley Clark’s , ‘Outstanding Formative Assessment’,  Professor John Hattie’s, ‘Visible Learning’ and Carol Dweck’s, ‘Growth Mindset’; all leading edge education research and strategy.

Ask your child about these strategies and how they use them in class, especially our very own, ‘S2S‘!!

Learning and Teaching Toolkit: Core Strategies Cards 

We will continue to evaluate and build on  these cards and strategies as we further engage with research and strive to provide  high, quality consistent practice for our pupils.

 

Health Wellbeing: GIRFEC & SHANARRI

The Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) approach supports children and young people so that they can grow up feeling loved, safe and respected and can realise their full potential. At home, in school or the wider community, every child and young person should be:

  • Safe
  • Healthy
  • Achieving
  • Nurtured
  • Active
  • Respected
  • Responsible
  • Included

These eight factors are often referred to by their initial letters – SHANARRI.

 

They are wellbeing indicators which help make it easier for children and families and the people working with them to discuss how a child or young person is doing at a point in time and if there is a need for support.

Each child is unique and there is no set level of wellbeing that children should achieve. Wellbeing is influenced by children’s individual experiences and changing needs as they grow.
