Highfield School: Effective Learning Major Awards - Commended

We are very pleased to give a Commended Award for Effective Learning to Highfield School this year.  Jennie Clift, Assistant Headteacher, made a strong case for funding a two-year Bedrock Learning subscription for KS3 and 4 which also included extra staff hours for intervention, headphones and reading tests.

Jennie clearly explained the importance of literacy for all pupils and how the Bedrock system would help all abilities of student and provide invaluable feedback via its in-built monitoring system.  Bedrock’s adaptability means that subject-specific language can be reinforced across the curriculum and its easy access makes it suitable for in-lesson, after-school and home-learning.  The “fun” nature of the software also helps engage all pupils and bring parents on-board to help with home-learning.
