What is ReflectED?

ReflectED is a programme that aims to develop pupils’ metacognitive skills (learning how they learn) – their ability to monitor and manage their own learning – by teaching specific learning strategies and encouraging pupil reflection.

It supports and improves attainment, especially amongst disadvantaged pupils, and aims to help learners of all backgrounds develop the tools to make excellent progress in their learning and fulfil their potential.

ReflectED teaches children the skills of reflection and how to record their learning moments and strategies. Teachers can also look across these reflections to understand what pupils are enjoying or struggling with, and identify specific pupil needs.

How does it work?

Pupils receive a weekly ReflectED (metacognition) lesson. Throughout the week, pupils have a chance to reflect on their learning and record those reflections.
