The TALL Learner

The TALL (Thinking and Learning for Life) Learner philosophy is central to everything we do at Heathcote Valley School. It provides us with the framework to develop students and staff in a range of attributes and attitudes. 

Children are regularly encouraged to reflect on their actions, behaviour and learning with reference to the TALL Learner. As a school, we then celebrate the children’s TALL Learner success at our two weekly TALL Learner assemblies and through the school’s newsletter.

The TALL Learner Assemblies

At each of the fortnightly TALL Learner assemblies, a few children per class are acknowledged for their success on meeting the TALL Learner values.
