At Ormond School we use Assessment for Learning to enhance our teaching and learning experiences.

Students and teachers formulate clear learning intentions and success criteria so that all of our learners know what they are learning and why.

Our staff strive to establish strong learning focused relationships with all children. Our learners know that they themselves are in charge of their learning and what changes and improvements they can make for next time.

POWERFUL LEARNERS ARE HAPPY TO GO INTO THE LEARNING PIT!

Students have a range of tools they can use to get out of the ‘learning pit’:


  • Persistence

  • Managing self

  • Thinking

  • Questioning

  • Growth mindset

  • Reflecting

  • Wondering
