AGS Learner

Our Journey

Our Journey

From the initial plans for the AGS Learner to more recent changes, we have always been keen to review and develop our strategy using feedback from groups within the school community, latest research findings as well as local, national and international partnerships.

From consultations, to launch and beyond

  • 2014 - 2015Consultations take place with our staff, students and parents about what characteristics they feel will make a successful learner at AGS. Feedback is combined with the latest educational theory and research and the five traits of the AGS Learner are decided.
  • 2015 - 2016AGS Learner is launched to staff and students and a half termly focus introduces each key aspect. Staff build the development of learning into their lessons alongside the delivery of their subject. Monthly items in the newsletter keep parents up to date with AGS Learner progress.
  • 2016 - 2017The AGS Learner website is launched! After a successful Year 1, AGS Learner is in place and student, staff and parent feedback is used to shape how we develop and improve. Student and staff learning working groups continue to be active in refining what we do.
  • 2017 - 2018We continue to review and develop AGS Learner using student, parent and staff feedback. AGS Learner is central to staff CPD and student guidance on successful learning. The very popular and successful Learning Workshop enables parents to better understand the challenges, pressures and rewards of being a learner.
  • 2018 - 2019Are we missing anything? That is the key question for this year to help us consider how to take AGS Learner forward.
  • 2019-2020The focus on learning character, as part of AGS Learner, has been effective in developing our students’ learning habits. We have been very keen to enhance AGS Learner by bringing in aspects of Emotional Character to support emotional health, wellbeing and resilience through weekly Personal Development sessions – this was much needed given the challenges of 2020!
