Learning Together – (A Teaching and Learning Policy for CBC)

Over the past 2 years we have consulted with teachers, students and parents to develop a common framework for Learning in Coláiste Bhaile Chláir. The work has been led out by Ms Egan.

We have developed 6 Key Principles which are central to our approach to “Building Learning Capacity” within CBC.

They form the focal point for all of our CPD with teachers, students and parents.

While most are already embedded in classroom practice over the next 5 years as part of our Strategic Plan we will continue to embed these right throughout the school.


The core guiding principle that lies at the heart of everything we do at Coláiste Bhaile Chláir is to encourage and develop each member of the school community to achieve personal excellence through empowerment.

We believe that this can only be achieved by the entire school community learning together. It is critical that students develop their capacity to learn, both independently and collectively.

We have developed six key approaches to learning that are used consistently and creatively across our community and which, collectively, we refer to as Building Learning Capacity. These approaches are explained in our Teaching and Learning document 'Together we will achieve' which is attached here.

This plan is linked to our Strategic Development Goals also and is fully embedded into our School Improvement Plans each year which can be found under the School Plan section of our Website
