At Heriot Primary we are always working hard to ensure our pupils receive the best educational experience possible. To support this, and as part of our continual review of the curriculum we are delivering we asked all of our pupils to tell us what they felt were the key skills and attributes a pupil at Heriot Primary should have and use. Taking the feedback these discussions as well as from pupil focus groups pupils’ ideas were collated and used to create our ‘Heriot Toolkit’ and ‘A Heriot Learner is…’ annotated diagrams.
These diagrams can be found everywhere in the school from the front entrance to the Janitor’s office to every classroom within Heriot Primary. They are one of the key ways that as a school, we ensure a consistency in both the language we use with the pupils as well as the high standards and expectations we work with them to achieve. They are also a fantastic way of helping parents and carers of our pupils work in partnership with us to help all of our pupils to achieve these high standards and expectations.
