Characteristics of effective learning

The characteristics of effective learning underpin our pupils learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage. The ways in which they engage with others and their environment – playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically – underpin learning and development across all areas and support the children to remain effective and motivated learners. The characteristics of effective learning can be shown at any time. Staff will observe play and provide a range of structured and unstructured activities allowing children the time and space to develop confidence, imagination and learning.
