For learning to be effective, pupils need to be actively involved.
As well as collating data to track pupil progress and encouraging pupils to reflect on their own work to identify areas for improvement, teachers should listen to pupil feedback.
This unit will allow senior leaders to effectively set out the case for the use of pupil voice to colleagues, and guide them towards developing this practice.
