A ground-breaking Personalised Learning Programme (PLP) at The Royal School Armagh
Pupils Learn at different speeds. We can attempt to homogenise learning experiences as much as possible but there comes a point where sensitive differentiation will have a significant impact. Pupils are all as different as their DNA! Their own innate intelligence level, motivation and outcomes are unique to them. The Royal School has developed a personalised learning programme which was graded as “outstanding” and “sector-leading” by the Inspectorate, “innovative” and “ground-breaking” by HMC. It has attracted national recognition and international interest. Great credit must be given to Dr Peter Addis, a member of senior management, whose doctoral research (now patented) laid the impressive ground work for the outworking and effective operationalizing of the five-year project in school. The school is considered to have “smashed open the inside of the The Black Box of assessment brought to the world of education by Paul Black and Dylan William”.
What is it about wasps and closed windows?!
