Assessment For Learning Workshop

Trainee teachers from Whitley Bay’s schools direct programme attended an Assessment for Learning workshop in school yesterday. As well as working on strategies to use in the class room, they also had the opportunity to see classroom practice observing teachers and pupils in lessons.
​The session allows students to develop an understanding of assessment and how this can be built into their planning. By the end of the session trainees had a clear understanding ​of ways to assess the progress of pupil and  a bank of strategies to implement.

Attendance Winners

Attendance and punctuality are so important both for school life and for life when students have left school, that’s why Bedlingtonshire Academy celebrates attendance success when we can.

Each week the highest attending tutor group receives the ‘Attendance Trophy’ in assembly. The tutor group gets to keep and display the trophy until the following week when the next highest achieving attendance tutor group will receive the award.

Last weeks winners were CMA, LW and LWH

Well done!

Future Chef Competition
