Evidence For Learning
At Lampard Community School we use an application called ‘Evidence for Learning (EfL)’ to record your child’s learning. We take photos and videos of your child’s learning and progress towards their Personal Learning Goals. This evidence is then uploaded into their Learning Journal which we share with you at termly Personal Learning Goal Meetings and will also be used to form the end of year report.
The Evidence for Learning programme contains a parent portal on which parents/carers can upload photos, short videos and descriptions of their child’s learning or progress towards the PLG targets from home. We have successfully trialled this part of the programme and saw some wonderful sharing of evidence in school, at home and in their community.
We would now like to invite all parents to sign up to the portal. There will be help guides provided and the opportunity to virtually meet to look at the portal and how it works. We will be sharing evidence regularly and also publishing the learning journeys and end of year reports via the portal. Please complete the form on the next page, once you have read our acceptable usage conditions below.
