Laureate Learning Characteristics

Why do we have Learning Characteristics?

  • Characteristics of Effective Learning are embedded in Early Years practice.
  • They are used to encourage and support our children across the whole school to describe how they are learning.
  • They help children to build valuable lifelong learning attitudes.
  • They are linked to our ‘REACH’ values, e.g. ‘Team Workers’ and ‘Respect’.
