Secondary Assessment - Assessment for Learning: A Special Case

Description

In this programme, LEA advisor Ron Rooney visits Meadows EBD School, County Durham, to see what they have learnt seven years after adopting AFL.

We watch as a Year 7 group tackle ICT with a simplified assessment grid. A Year 10 group use a similar pattern of success criteria to practice some basic reading and writing skills, whilst a talented Year 9 art group appraise their own work against GCSE descriptors, gaining supportive oral feedback from their teacher who gently encourages them to acknowledge their own potential.

After opening in a rush, and reeling from a tough initial OFSTED inspection, management at Meadows EBD School incorporated AFL as a guiding principle for consistent teaching and learning that can be applied to pupils with a wide range of emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties.
