Visible learning is a school improvement initiative which is based on research and is focussed on what works best to help our pupils to learn. An Daras Trust became an accredited Visible Learning Partner in 2019 after implementation of this improvement programme across its schools since 2016.
Coads Green Primary School began our Learning Journey in September 2019
The Visible Learning improvement programme is based upon the principles from John Hattie’s ongoing analysis about the effect of various influences on learning. Each influence on learning has a carefully calculated “effect size” which uses mathematical data which is used to inform training and provision within the Trust schools.
Pupils at Coads Green are developing the ability to display these essential learning characteristics of a visible learner:
We are working towards our pupils being assessment capable
Assessment Capable Learners can ask and find the answer to:
Where am I going?
How am I going there?
Where to next?
Pupils see learning as hard work, have a ‘can do’ approach and a desire to succeed.
This links successfully with our school vision of “Achieve, Believe, Succeed” and the Andaras Trust vision of 'Igniting Curiosity, Growing Capabilities'.

Core Values (learning characteristics) at Coads Green
Lenny our learning lemur helps us to know and understand our core values. They are:
Curious – Curiosity prepares our brains for learning. If our teacher is able to make us curious about something, we are naturally motivated to learn. This means we’ll be better prepared to learn things that we might think are boring or difficult.
Independence – Independent learning is the ability to work on our own, with confidence and little or no adult support. This includes how we manage our own learning as well as how to respond to difficulties or challenges.
Resilient – Resilience is an important skill to learn because it gives us the things we need to deal well with the stresses, changes, uncertainties and troubles that we sometimes experience. If we are resilient, we can do well in any situation.
Collaborative – Collaborative learning is when we work in groups together to solve problems, complete tasks or create something. Collaborative learning is good when conversations with others takes place.
Reflective – Learning involves us thinking about what we have read, done or learned and relating the learning to our own lives to make meaning out of the information we have.
