Developing Pupils’ Aspirations, Attitudes And Engagement In Learning To Meet The New Evaluation Criteria

This one day course is aimed at all primary staff responsible for raising standards. The course is designed to help participants to ascertain and evaluate pupils’ views.

The course directly addresses the latest Evaluation Criteria on pupil behaviour:

  • Pupils show very high levels of engagement, courtesy, collaboration and cooperation in and out of lessons.
  • Pupils have excellent, enthusiastic attitudes to learning
  • Pupils contribute to the school and the wider community and develop the workplace and their future economic well-being

Participants gain strategies and skills to develop the individual and collective involvement of pupils while enhancing engagement and involvement within their school community. Developing personalised effective learning experiences in school is key to enabling teachers to shape learning and teaching, making the most of the talents and skills of every child.

“Excellent delivery- use of videos and slideshows give us clear focus avenues and then a resource pack that we can ‘dip’ into as necessary is a really useful tool”. “Very informative, gave great ideas that have proven to work...linked to real schools, real settings, things that have been tried and tested”. “Lots of ideas I will use- thank you!”. “Very flexible approach...personal experience always better than reading models and themes- thank you!”. “Good practical ideas to take back to our school”. “Practical, manageable advice and dozens of ideas. Thank you”.
