Our 4 Strategic Obsessions
Teachers will deliver a cohesive curriculum that is inclusive of all learners to enable them to fully access the curriculum in order to make strong progress.
A culture of reading is clear in classrooms, and types of reading are explicitly taught and modelled. Teachers make the benefits of reading clear and show their passion for reading both within their subject and beyond.
Teachers will regularly use approaches to monitor understanding in lessons. This will allow them to identify understanding and areas where support is required, ensuring that misconceptions are identified, and progress for all learners.
LITERACY AND ORACY
Teachers effectively use strategies to support student literacy, with a focus on oracy, so that pupils can: engage effectively in discussion and debate; communicate their own ideas fluently; and clearly articulate their learning within subjects, and across the wider curriculum.
