What is 'Attitude to Learning'?

A2L is an Academy initiative which monitors a student's ATTITUDE TO LEARNING.

Students are awarded a grade 1-3; ranging from 1 being Outstanding to 3 signifying Requires Improvement.

Why do we measure A2L?

We recognise that every student is unique and has strengths in different subjects. A2L does not focus on a student's academic ability but acknowledges their approach to learning. All students, therefore, have the chance to achieve an outstanding grade, regardless of their set and academic achievement. It focuses on the basic qualities a student needs in order to be successful in a classroom; are they giving themselves the best opportunity to reach their potential?

How often does a student get a A2L score?

A student will receive an A2L score at the end of every half-term.
