This week, the academy’s newly formed Junior Leadership Team had their first meeting of the term.
The team has been set up to give our children more of a voice when deciding how to improve the teaching and learning that takes place at the academy. In the first meeting, the children looked at how the marking policy could be improved so that it will enable the children to make even better progress.
During the meeting, Mackenzie said, “The teachers have to mark hundreds of books a week so we must make sure that how they are marking is manageable and not repetitive.” Keal added, “Less marking will give time for teachers to plan better lessons for us all.”
