Dunblane Primary School
Thorough the project the pupils have shown increased confidence in working collaboratively. Pupils took ownership of the project and showed enthusiasm in leading themselves and others while creating their own action plans.
Learners were empowered and as a result showed greater confidence in contributing to group discussions and sharing their own ideas. They have developed leadership skills and skills for life, learning and work.
Due to the Junior Leadership team changing every year it will not be possible to sustain the same pupils being involved in project however this will allow for other pupils throughout the school to be given the opportunity to develop their skills by undertaking this JLT role as well as shape our LfS journey.
Next year the aim would be for the new JLT to continue with the work put in place this year and will continue to collaborate with schools within our learning community. The new JLT will evaluate the LfS HGIOS outcomes again next year and create next steps which they will then work together to action and this process will continue as necessary in the years ahead.
The JLT would like for schools within our local authority to build connections with other JLT as working together we can make the biggest difference.
We will be collaborating with other schools within our learning community. St Mary's Primary and Newton Primary.
Pupil voice should be at the heart of our evaluations of HGIOS and in informing our next steps in developing a whole school approach to LfS. Learning for Sustainability is a continuous journey. Education should be responsive to our learners and the changing nature of the world around them.
Learning for Sustainability is essential in providing learners with the knowledge, skills and values to be part of an ever changing world. Our young people should therefore be involved every step of the way in shaping LfS within their school community.
I have been able to see LfS through the eyes of our pupils and that has been invaluable as we move forward on our LfS journey. It has been great to see the pupils grow as individuals through while developing lots of skills along the way. I have really enjoyed working alongside such enthusiastic and inspiring young people!
