1. A Focus on Learners and Learning. You put learners and their learning first. Your
understanding of the difference between learning and the factors that affect learning
enables you to plan and support a good struggle for all your students to get better. You
are committed to your personal and professional learning and development, engaging
in a series of learning visits and inquiries with colleagues and leaders to support your
ongoing self-evaluation. You are an active and valued member of dynamic learning
1. Learning and Teaching. You put learners and their learning first in your design and
facilitation of learning outcomes, content and experiences, which are underpinned by
positive and supportive relationships. You understand the types and phases of learning
and apply your knowledge, skills and understanding of these to effectively facilitate
learning, teaching, and assessing to meet the personalized needs of each student. You
empower students to lead their own learning, supporting them to monitor, assess and
adjust their learning in response to feedback. You continuously inquire into the process
of learning, making evidence-informed decisions and taking action to further improve
learning and teaching.
1. Evidence of Learning. You gather, document and analyses evidence of learning from
various sources and use this to identify targets and action steps for improving learning.
You support students in knowing the different ways their learning can be evidenced and
how to use feedback and learning advice to get better. Evidence enables you to make
secure judgments about your students’ learning in line with their personal learning
goals, age and stage appropriate expectations, and local, national and international
benchmarking. You document and share evidence of learning to answer the questions:
“What are my students learning?” and “How do I know?”.
1. Leadership for Learning. You see yourself as a leader for learning and demonstrate the
same vision, values and commitment as school leaders to support students to
continuously learn and get better. You take responsibility for where students are now
with their learning and the targets and action steps needed to improve. You support
students to become leaders of their own learning by helping them develop their voice,
choice and ownership of their learning process.
1. Learning Spaces. You create and use spaces to support and demonstrate the school’s
shared ideas about learners and learning and the ways in which students are getting
better. You ensure learning spaces (physical and digital) are safe, collaborative,
accessible and inclusive, and enable students to play an active role in their development.
1. In Partnership with Parents and Carers. You work in partnership with parents and
carers, communicating with them regularly about their child’s learning, inviting their
feedback and using this feedback to improve learning. You help parents and carers
