Category: Inititation  

Abbreviation: INI

This is a category in the "Pre-Curriculum/National Curriculum Area" category list. See also: Pre-curriculum/National curriculum descriptions.


This shows how much, and the different ways, a pupil investigates a stimulus or activity in order to bring about a desired outcome. The pupil will act spontaneously and independently during a familiar activity without waiting for direction.

Initiation becomes more established when the pupil shows they understand how to create an impact on their environment in order to achieve a desired outcome.

Initiation is important to establish how well the pupil is developing independence, which is required for more advanced progression.
