FOUR CAPACITIES
These are positive learning behaviours which are essential foundations for raising aspiration and
attainment and unlocking ambition.
SUCCESSFUL
LEARNERS
who are enthusiastic,
motivated, determined
to achieve and open to
new thinking and ideas.
CONFIDENT
INDIVIDUALS
“I have learnt that no
matter what my fears are, I should
always try one thing once, and maybe
then I can conquer my fear”
– JADE, AGED 10
RESPONSIBLE
CITIZENS
RESILIENCE: to
give things a go, to
keep trying, to put
themselves outside of
their comfort zone
REFLECTION: to think
about what went well
and what could be
improved upon next
time
REFLECTION
who are resilient and
self-reliant.
RESPONSIBILITY:
for their behaviour,
their belongings,
their safety, their
commitment to the
course(s)
RESILIENCE
EFFECTIVE
CONTRIBUTORS
RESPECT
who have self-respect
and a sense of physical,
mental and emotional
wellbeing.
RESPECT: for
themselves, others,
equipment and the
environment
RESPONSIBILITY
Developing the four capacities (taken
from the Scottish Curriculum for
Excellence) is a continuing process
to encourage more experiential
learning to best ensure that children
and young people are prepared for
the complex world ahead. Our aim is
for children to embrace and embed
behaviours to make them:
THE UFTON FOUR R’S
who have respect for
others and who are willing
to participate responsibly
in all aspects of life.
Our work uses the approach: INVESTIGATE, CONSIDER, REFLECT, REVIEW – to give young people
a clear under-standing of what we want them to know, do and understand. We want young people to
learn to take more responsibility for their own learning so they need to know:
1. What they are going to learn?
2. How they will recognise when they have succeeded?
3. Why they should learn it in the first place?
