Teaching & Learning

T&L Philosophy

What we are about......
Our philosophy is simple, every child, regardless of background or academic ability should be given every opportunity to shine! It is our job to help them to do just that. We do not get it right 100% of the time, however we are a driven and determined staff, often working with children who have many life obstacles. It is our responsibility to ensure that our lessons have no obstacles to success. We aim to challenge and support learners and we are not afraid to try new things. These pages are designed to allow staff to share new and innovative ideas which will allow for improvements in teaching.
