Wow, what a week!

Our students have responded in the most incredible way to our raised and higher expectations for learning in our classrooms.  Walking around Marlwood School has always been a pleasure and over the past 2 years we have seen an increased focus from our students.  However, Readiness to learn has elevated the learning behaviour of our students even further.  Students have used the practice days from last week to familiarise themselves with the new raised expectations and the numbers of students referred to our Readiness To Learn room has fallen sharply.  The small number who have found themselves in the room have followed instructions well and have completed work, they have been fairly unanimous in agreeing that they don’t want to miss anymore lessons and will therefore be ‘Ready To Learn’ in lessons from now on.  The atmosphere and learning culture in our classrooms is now of a very high standard.  Teachers are already reporting that students are getting through more work to a greater depth.  Students are saying the same thing!

We have also been delighted with the positive responses and feedback we have received from parents.  We will of course be requesting feedback from you; please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss any aspect of ‘Readiness to Learn’.
