Fostering Reflective Learners within Secondary

There has been a big focus within the secondary school this year on ensuring students understand where they are at in terms of their academic progression and what they need to do to get to the next level of attainment.

Activating students as owners of their own learning and developing a more ‘reflective learner’ is something the secondary teaching team are passionate about. There is a great deal of evidence emerging based on educational research into effective teaching, learning and assessment strategies that support this notion. It is imperative that students understand learning as a journey and a process and that improvement requires consistent review and reflection.

The success criteria used for each level varies from assessment to assessment, however it always revolves around the same key skills and concepts that are expected to be demonstrated in their work.

Over time, with consistent review and reflection, students are able to clearly see their progress and identify areas of improvement.

I feel the ability to spend time reflecting on the work we have studied gives us the chance to be more involved in our own learning. I believe the reflection sheets give me an opportunity to see which areas I have done well in and what I need to do to achieve the highest marks possible in my forthcoming exams.
