Dunbar Grammar School has been featured on the Journey to Excellence site sharing their use of self-evaluation techniques and Assessment is for Learning.

“Dunbar Grammar School has developed self-evaluation techniques and practices to open up, develop and improve the quality of young people’s learning. The Headteacher, staff, parents and students discuss different methods of self-evaluation and how these have enabled everyone to learn together. This film also reviews some of the approaches taken to promote pupil voice and staff review the benefits of Assessment is for Learning across the school.” The Journey to Excellence
