Our FESL plan originated from three statistics and one observation:

The 2013-2014 Middle Years Development Instrument (MDI) indicated that 53% of our students felt connected to two or more adults at our school. The District average was 74%.

The 2014 Satisfaction Survey demonstrated that 52% of grade 4 students like school most or all the time. The district average was 65%.

The 2017 Satisfaction Survey demonstrated that 53% of grade 7 students like school most or all the time. The district average was 57%.

The Caulfeild inquiry model was established but could benefit from greater connectedness and consistency between the grades. This was especially timely with the implementation of the new curriculum.

FOCUS

The 2013-2014 Middle Years Instrument indicates that 47% of our students do not feel connected to two or more adults in the school. We may infer that there is also disconnection between our students. By creating learning opportunities with cross-grade and multi-age groups within our whole school inquiries, we look to develop a stronger sense of community and connection amongst our educational stakeholders. By so through Inquiry, we are building capacity in the implementation of our Inquiry-based model and the new curriculum.

The Learning Commons is meant to create an environment of choice and facilitate cooperation and collaboration. Moving beyond the traditional classroom environment and creating micro-environments (campfire, watchtower, watering hole, office) will foster a greater degree of collaboration and connection between our students.
