Skills Builder was introduced to us as part of a careers project we were involved in last year. Our school is passionate about providing pupils with a well-rounded, inspiring and creative curriculum and so participating in the Skills Builder programme was something that was of immediate interest. One of our main drives and priorities at Harbour is to make sure all of our learners leave with high aspirations for themselves and with a secure understanding and application of the 8 key skills. We hope that this will enable them to be successful in whatever future career they choose.
Children have enjoyed receiving certificates when they have demonstrated good learning. Through pupil voice I know that children across the school are aware of the essential skills. It has been a good way of bringing together the school and having a theme that threads its way through each year group.
