Commitment to Learning

Your child will receive a C2L grade in their reports each term; this grade informs you about your child's effort and commitment to the following aspects of their learning at Holloway School.

Your child will also receive this commitment to learning grade verbally and in response to learning in lessons and home learning by their teachers, in each subject that they study:

•          My participation and behaviour for learning

•          My attitude to practice and perseverance

•          How I respond to challenge and learning risks

•          Asking and answering questions

•          My attitude to mistakes

•          How I act on feedback

•          Ready for learning – equipment

•          My home learning

It is the expectation that your child will endeavour to attain C2L grade 5 in their subjects. This would mean that your child loves learning and is active in their learning, as a result of positive behaviour. If your child receives feedback that tells them their C2L grade is a 5, it also means that your child works independently and tries hard, practising until they get their learning right: your child doesn't give up.

Your child also, to achieve a grade 5 for commitment to learning, likes challenge and takes risks in their learning, discussing with their peers the progress they are making as a result of this. Your child will also ask questions and attempt to answer questions in each subject they study.

Further to this, your child is resilient and listens to and acts on feedback provided by their teacher and peers consistently. They are prepared for every lesson and complete home learning to the highest possible standard.
