This page covers the second (effectiveness) trial, testing a scalable model under everyday conditions in a large number of schools. View ReflectED Metacognition to read about the first (efficacy) trial, testing whether it could work in schools under best possible conditions.

ReflectED is a whole-school approach developed by Rosendale Primary School. It aims to develop metacognitive skills, by teaching pupils strategies to reflect on, monitor and manage their own learning. It is delivered through a series of pre-prepared lesson plans from Reception to Key Stage 2 (KS2) (including technology aided reflection and other visual scaffolds). It consists of 28, weekly, half-hour lessons, delivered by teachers over five school terms.
