Since 2014, Wormley Primary School has been promoting the Social Learning Agenda (SLA). The SLA is about the school community coming together to try and maximise every child’s learning potential. It’s about developing children as happy, engaged life-long learners; not just good students. It’s about children feeling in control and taking ownership of their own learning.
The aims of the Social Learning Agenda are to:
An important part of the SLA is evolving the ethos of the school and promoting the idea that children are partners in their learning.
To teach the children about what it means to be a ‘Super Social Leaner’ we have created The Agents. There are 7 learning agents and 4 wellbeing agents which we consider essential for the ‘Wormley Learner’. Each agent has it’s own story, characteristics and symbols. Each story is told through a short movie. The Agents aim to make learning about how to become a better learner fun and memorable. A new agent is introduced to the children every two weeks during Tuesday’s collective worship assembly. Meet The Learning Agents in the ‘Deploy Your Agents’ film.
Wormley host a Social Learning Network meeting every half term. School leaders teachers and governors from teachers across the Eastern Region attend the meeting to share practice and ideas. Wormley regularly lead presentations and discussions about developments in school.
To explore The Agents and immerse the children in social learning, we dedicate days of the year where the focus is on particular characteristics of The Agents.
