We recently had an ‘away day’ to give staff time and space to develop their thinking for their individual projects. It provided and opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better away from the busy working environment, to reflect on strengths in our teaching, as well as our areas for development.
Each member of the team is about to submit a project ‘brief’ to detail the work they are undertaking in their classroom. In doing so they have considered their baseline evidence, the ways in which learning intentions and success criteria will be agreed and developed with yougnsters and how they will show progression. We have some really interesting ideas that I’m sure will make a significant impact across the school. Have a look at the learning team members page for the focus of each staff member. Please feel free to get in touch if you see something of interest.
Our learning library will also be coming to fruition in the next few weeks. We have taken suggestions from staff about what they would like to see in a professional learning resource and hope to have it ‘up and running very shortly’ . Any suggestions about how we use this resource as a learning community are welcomed. Current suggestions are:
- book reviews
- publication of the month
- learning lunches
We are keen to develop more ideas to make this valuable resource acccessible to the whole staff so please get in touch if you have any thoughts.
