Teaching & Learning Team
The Teaching and Learning Team (TLT) comprise of two Lead Practitioners and three Advanced Lead Teachers and work alongside the Assistant Headteacher in charge of Teaching and Learning to support all staff in raising academic standards both within the classroom and beyond.
The TLT meet regularly to plan inset sessions and discuss new initiatives, conduct learning walks to spot good practice and ensure it is shared across the staff body and develop bespoke programmes to aid teachers with their pedagogy.
They often work alongside colleagues in the Professional Learning Area (PLA), assisting with effective lesson planning and developing best practice with the assessment of student work.
A very strong coaching culture exists in the school and the Teaching and Learning Team lead the way in this aspect of school life, using the latest technology including SWIVL to encourage reflection, discussion and improved practice.
One of the Lead Practitioners leads a reading group which meets regularly to discuss latest cutting edge practice and each half term a teaching and learning newsletter is published, highlighting pedagogical news from within and beyond the school.
