Attitude to Learning

Students’ attitude to learning (AtL) is as important as their attendance. If they are serious about wanting to do well at Kingsmead School, then they need to develop an excellent attitude to learning. If a student is working below their expected percentage score in a subject, it will be because they need to improve an aspect of their attitude to learning.

AtL Scores
Teachers will award students a score of 1 to 6 for their Attitude to Learning. The information under the headers below outline what each Attitude to Learning score means. This should help students to reflect on what they can do to improve:

AtL score of 6
A score of 6 indicates that the student is regularly doing more than their teacher expects, in their lessons and with their homework. It also shows that the student’s teacher thinks they are doing everything that they can to achieve a higher percentage score than they are expected to.

AtL score of 5
A score of 5 indicates that the student is doing everything to help themselves achieve the best percentage score they can, in their lessons and with their homework. A score of 5 is excellent and shows that the student is always meeting the school’s attitude to learning expectations.

A score of 5 also shows that the student’s teacher thinks they are doing everything that they can to achieve their expected percentage score. If they keep working hard, they could achieve a higher percentage score than they are expected to.

AtL score of 4
A score of 4 indicates that the student is usually works hard to help themselves achieve the best percentage score they can, in their lessons and with their homework. A score of 4 is very good and shows that the student is meeting most of the school’s attitude to learning expectations.

A score of 4 also shows that the students’ teacher thinks that they could achieve their expected percentage score, but there is still a little room for improvement. The student may benefit from talking to their teacher to find out which aspects of their Attitude to Learning they could improve.

AtL score of 3
A score of 3 indicates that the student is working steadily, but could do more work to help themselves achieve the best percentage score they can, both in their lessons and with their homework. A score of 3 is fair, but with room for improvement and shows that the student only sometimes meets the school’s attitude to learning expectations.

A score of 3 also shows that the students’ teacher thinks they could achieve their expected percentage score, but they will first need to improve their Attitude to Learning scores to a 4 or 5 before their next progress report.

AtL score of 2
A score of 2 indicates that the student should be doing more to help themselves achieve the best percentage score they can, both in their lessons and with their homework. A score of 2 shows that the student is only occasionally meeting the school’s attitude to learning expectations. The Progress Leader may discuss the student going on report with them and their parents, to support their Attitude to Learning.

A score of 2 also shows that the students’ teacher thinks that the student is unlikely to achieve their expected percentage score. Kingsmead School will expect to see an improvement in the student’s Attitude to Learning in the near future.

AtL score of 1
A score of 1 indicates that the student should be doing much more to help themselves achieve the best percentage score they can, both in their lessons and with their homework. A score of 1 is poor and shows that the student is rarely meeting the school’s attitude to learning expectations. The Progress Leader may discuss academic interventions with the student and their parents, to help you improve their commitment to their learning.

A score of 1 also shows that the students’ teacher thinks they are very unlikely to achieve their expected percentage score. An improvement in the student’s Attitude to Learning is urgently needed.
