Middle Years Portfolio

Truro School Middle Years (3rd – 5th Year) are a time for both specialisation and personalisation of your child’s education choices and also a time for self-discovery and personal empowerment.

Learning happens at a different rate for every child and it’s crucial we equip each child with the skills they need to take their own learning forward. This involves fostering learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom, encouraging our pupils to build skills and values that will enable them to lead fulfilling lives.

In the 3rd Year, we are pleased to introduce pupils to the Middle Years Portfolio. Designed to celebrate individuality, achievements and a personal journey, MiYPortfolio supports pupils’ self-realisation (learning about their true self) and self-actualisation (becoming all that they can be).

MiYPortfolio provides a platform for pupils to document, track and share their accomplishments within the whole curriculum using five literacies (Digital, Wellbeing, Cognitive, Social and Futures) and has been designed to guide pupils in their journey toward success and personal development through both personalised learning experiences and continuous progress monitoring and feedback.

Supported and encouraged by Tutors, each pupil will be responsible for uploading evidence to their Portfolio and as pupils enter the 4th Year they will have access to a fortnightly Portfolio session to develop their Literacies.

Alongside overall educational experience and personal development, MiYPortfolio offers several benefits to your child:

  • Tailors personalised discussions about your child and their future.​
  • Identifies their strengths and interests​
  • Direction in developing key literacies
  • Inspires paths aligned with their interests
  • Documents evidence for future pathways

In summary, the MiYPortfolio not only provides pupils with a strong academic foundation but also equips them with essential life skills, fosters personal growth and prepares them for future educational and career pursuits.
