The School Council met for the first time with a very important brief as their first focus – maximising teacher feedback and personalised knowledge on individual progress. Miss Addinall was hugely impressed with the articulate and thoughtful points being shared and with the way that school leaders were leaning in and listening to younger pupils.
It’s the quality of the feedback rather than its existence or absence that determines its power.
I can’t wait to hear their thoughts that will be shared with the Senior Management Team before going to teachers as we look to create a far more effective dialogue on learning. All too often schools remain in the dinosaur age driven by pleasing school inspectors and parents rather than our learners – watch this space!
The Ryder cup might be over but Mr Donohoe took the 1st group out on our new frisbee golf course today for a quick 9 holes around the beautiful 'Meadow Hills' during lunch. #Wellbeing!
