Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities


"I think school is a place where thinking should be taught."
Edward de Bona


In Cumran Primary, we pride ourselves in providing all our pupils with a range of strategies and tools to enable them to think.  Our vision is: 'To ensure that every learner fulfils his or her potential at each stage of her or his development' (ESaGS) 

Thinking skills are a central part of the school life and are infused into all areas of learning throughout the school.  In Cumran, pupils use a variety of tools to help them learn in different ways, which have had a huge impact on their learning. Our most recent ETI Inspection Report shows how effective these tools are in the children’s learning.
