Revision and Study Skills Development at Cowbridge School

Learner progression and ensuring that learners achieve their potential is at the heart of our approach to Teaching & Learning at Cowbridge School.  In accordance with the principles of the Curriculum for Wales our curriculum is designed 'to support increasing depth and sophistication of learning over time. This allows space for a variety of diversion, repetition and reflection as learners’ thinking develops over time to new levels of sophistication.' An integral part of this process is the teaching of strategies that aid learning by committing information to long term memory through attention and rehearsal:
