Pupil Targets

Over the last few weeks we have been setting this term’s targets. The targets, which have been created jointly by the teacher and the pupil, focus on three areas of curriculum – Literacy, Maths and Numeracy and another subject suited to each class.

We have been discussing targets in class so the children know themselves as learners so please ask your child what their targets are (your child may call them Learning Intentions and Star Steps depending on their age) so we can all be partners in the children’s learning. These targets may have already been shared with you at Parents’ Evening and at the Drop-in today.

Evidence for these targets will then be gathered and shared in the pupils’ Learning Stories to see how they are progressing with their individual target. The staff can edit these targets if necessary. The Learning Stories will be sent home in December in order for you to see your child’s learning.

If you have any questions or queries then please ask the class teacher.

Thanks.
