Visible Learning

At North Petherwin and Werrington, we have achieved the status of Visible Learning Partner School through undertaking action research into how children learn best via a project called Visible Learning. The Visible Learning development model is based upon the principles developed by John Hattie’s research. 

After collating our  evidence, trialling different strategies and presenting our findings, we were delighted to  receive the following email from the Regional Director of  Osiris Educational:

“I would like to congratulate you on your successful application to become a Level 2 Visible Learning Plus Partner MAT. The case study that you have  submitted, capturing your journey, was of high quality and provided a deep insight into how you have moved from evidence to impact.”


A huge congratulations to all the staff who have worked tirelessly to enable such a fantastic result to be achieved. As a Visible Learning school our aim is that...


  • Pupils take ownership of their own learning.  They know where they are within the curriculum and what their next steps are.  Using their target grids they can track their own progress.  The pupils know what to do when they come across something they don’t know and have strategies to progress with their learning.  Pupils seek feedback and respond to it, and more importantly they give feedback to staff about their teaching. 


  • Pupils are active in their learning and are assessment capable.  Assessment Capable Learners can ask and find the answer to: Where am I going? How am I going there?  Where to next?
