Views on achievement

Discussion in 'Primary' started by LSpeight, Feb 11, 2011.

  1. Hey everyone.
    I am a student teacher who is investigating professional views of achievement. I am interested to find out what you define as an achieving child and an under-achiever.

    If you could let me know your opinions I would be very grateful!

    Personally, my views on academic achievement are mostly based on whether they achieve most fo the objectives set in lessons/their nc level etc, BUT their personal achievments - what I see as their progress and effort - are not. I have a lot of children who I class as under-achieving, because they are not achieving the expected levels for their age, however they are making good to excellent progress based on where they came in and this is where my emphasis is in terms of planning for them and feeding back to parents/SLT. Not saying this is how it is, just this is what I see it as.
