  12. 12. Impact of BLP @Bushfield? Teachers learn what it feels like to give much Visitors regularly comment on more autonomy to pupils how well pupils can work independently and in groups Self-regulation means we can explore inquiry-based learning with more confidence We have a language for learning which is part of what it means to learn and teach at Bushfield The language spills out from the classroom into other contexts, inc. home 18See also The Learning Powered School, by Guy Claxton 2012
