At Bankside we believe this helps

Pupils to be empowered through recognition of their learning and their next steps

Pupils to be develop clearer understanding of the assessment process

Pupils to have individual ( and quality) time with their parents

Benefits for parents:

To see their child as the owner of their learning

Parents to be clearer on what is going well and the child’s next step therefore how they can support their child’s learning

Parents to have clarity in what their child knows

Clearer understanding of the strategies that pupils .
