“Not all children are ready to learn the same thing at the same time in the same way.”
At Hillsmeade, we acknowledge this fact and work to personalise our teaching and learning to cater for the individual need of our students.

The Hillsmeade Personalised Learning Approach is strongly based on the idea that all children are not ready to learn the same thing at the same time in the same way, therefore we use a research based pedagogy that personalises and engages students in active learning alongside explicit and formalised instruction.

At Hillsmeade, we recognise the need for children to be active participants in their learning through goal setting, hands-on investigation, questioning and skill practice opportunities. We explicitly teach and develop skills in literacy and numeracy and also encourage the development of vital social, emotional and life skills.
