ELLI Learning Dimensions

As a school we have a strong focus on learning both in terms of academic success and progress but also in helping children become effective life-long learners (ELLI). Through a focus on seven learning dimensions we give the children a shared language of learning and an understanding of the skills they need in order to become successful learners.
