SOLE at Onchan
At Onchan School, we recognise and value that children learn best when they drive and have ownership over their learning. Our Learning Powers and Learning and Teaching policy reflect our ethos for teaching and learning, “we expect children to be actively involved in their learning. No two children learn in the same way and as teachers we need to ensure that we create opportunities to learn in ways which are creative, imaginative, not transmissive (i.e. not didactic- teaching from the front), hands on, dynamic, take account of new ways of learning, are skills based and which come from the children’s interests.” SOLE has proven to be an effective tool that encourages teaching and learning to be done in such a way that also runs in tandem with the Island’s statutory E4L curriculum.
