Our Learner dispositions 

At Clevedon School we explicitly teach what it means to be a good learner. Throughout the year teams will choose one or two of the following learner dispositions to teach through their units of inquiry:

Character - Learning to deep learn, armed with the essential character traits of grit, tenacity, perseverance, and resilience; and the ability to make learning an integral part of living.

Collaboration - Work interdependently and synergistically in teams with strong interpersonal and team-related skills including effective management of team dynamics and challenges, making substantive decisions together, and learning from and contributing to the learning of others.

Communication - Communicating effectively with a variety of styles, modes, and tools (including digital tools), tailored for a range of audiences.

Critical Thinking - Critically evaluating information and arguments, seeing patterns and connections, constructing meaningful knowledge, and applying it in the real world.

Citizenship - Thinking like global citizens, considering global issues based on a deep understanding of diverse values and worldviews, and with a genuine interest and ability to solve ambiguous and complex real-world problems that impact human and environmental sustainability.

Creativity - Having an ‘entrepreneurial eye’ for economic and social opportunities, asking the right inquiry questions to generate novel ideas, and leadership to pursue those ideas and turn them into action.
