- their ability to navigate life’s personal Challenge: by developing the confidence to engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help
- understanding their place in communities at global, national and local levels and seize the Opportunity of the future: by learning and demonstrating the school values in how they collaborate in their learning; by fostering pupils’ curiosity and deepening their understanding of the world and other cultures.
