Building Learning Power

Building Learning Power

Building Learning Power (BLP) is about preparing the children for the future. We want them to thrive in school but also for their years beyond Lakeside. Children are naturally curious and excited to learn and BLP promotes this by creating learners who actively seek new opportunities and challenge their minds.

We aim for:
• Well behaved, excited, engaged, inquisitive, motivated and independent learners
• Children to be equipped for the challenges of life in the 21st century
• Children to knowing what they’re good at; what’s worth learning; who can help; how to face confusion without getting upset and what the best learning tool is for the job at hand.

Learning can be improved through developing:
