Personalising Learning in the Primary Classroom: A Practical Guide for Teachers and School Leaders

Personalising Learning in the Primary School will challenge schools' thinking about how they teach and encourage them to consider putting the learner at the heart of the educational agenda.

Personalising learning is currently on the top of the DfES agenda and was officially launched by David Milliband in May 2004 at a seminar held at The Tate Britain, London to an invited audience of educationalists from Britain and abroad. The initiative is supported at the highest level in Government.

Personalising learning is seen as a powerful solution to reforming our current education system in order to meet individual learning needs and thereby raise standards. But, current government thinking has personalising learning firmly located within the secondary sector.

The author argues that for personalising learning to be successful, children must start making real choices about their learning from the earliest age and must be guided and coached throughout their primary years rather than 'taught' in a traditional way. She argues that the curriculum should be made to fit the child rather than the child being pushed through the 'sausage-factory education system' as it currently stands.

This book is intended to support primary schools in their work to meet this challenging agenda. It is packed with practical ideas that have been tried and tested in a real school and have proved popular with staff, parents and pupils (and Ofsted).

It considers all aspects of learning and teaching in the primary school and provides useful questions for the reader to consider their own working practices in the context of personalising learning.
