Making progress and learning visible

Our journey so far at Knebworth Primary and Nursery School


Growth Mindset

This is where our AFL journey began at Knebworth

We believe this underpins our learning philosophy

We begin to embed the culture from EYFS through to Y6

Each classroom has two characters who embody a fixed and growth mindset

We encourage children to challenge themselves and not to be afraid of green ‘mistakes’

A Growth Mindset leads to progress



Teacher Learning Communities

This is a recent development at Knebworth. Although not a year old yet, it has shown great impact!

Goes beyond using pink and green pens

1. Children complete a section of writing, for example.

2. Teacher marks, identifying pink aspects and green aspects using technical vocabulary, linking to the success criteria.

3. Children get their book back, read feedback, and redraft a section addressing the teacher’s comments.

4. Teacher re-marks to check the children have responded `appropriately, while the child reflects on the

progress they have made.

Year Five




Is progress

and learning visible


When work is compared from the start to the end of the year there is a marked improvement

Children are more confident using technical vocabulary and discussing its use within their writing

Within a piece of work there are clear aspects of progress from the original to the redraft

Children seek out their ‘greens’ and are excited to complete their redraft.

They are just like authors! Writing requires editing, reviewing and redrafting.



At Knebworth, we use a range of different AfL strategies to gather evidence about learning and adapt our teaching to meet the children’s needs. The use of these strategies allows the children to demonstrate progress and ensure that learning is visible.
