The Skills Builder Programme was incorporated into the School Development Plan so that all stakeholders were aware of the programme and its importance. All staff, including governors were trained on the Universal Framework and how it complimented the aims of the school and the outcomes for adulthood that form the foundation of our curriculum. Parents were also introduced to Skill Builder through our Parent Empowerment programme. All the classrooms have the skills displayed, and they are also displayed in the hall, cafe, corridors and entrance to the school. At the beginning of each lesson, teachers refer to the skill being taught as part of the lesson and in the plenary, pupils are asked to self-assess their performance in the lesson against that skill. Each half-term there has been a focus on a particular skill that is introduced in assembly and during Vertical Tutor time. That skill is then taught and practiced during our weekly designated learning skills lessons.
