Visible Learning/Bump It Up

  • Arncliffe Public School was identified as a Bump it Up School.
  • Staff have undertaken extensive professional development in Visible Learning and implemented explicit teaching using Learning Intentions, Success Criteria, Purposeful Feedback and data analysis. A common language has been developed across the school.
  • Teachers also engaged in classroom observations and feedback to improve pedagogy and broaden professional conversations across the school.
  • The Visible Learning initiative follows on from the Growth Mindset focus of the school. Students will have a clear knowledge of their learning pathway.
