The main aims of the Teaching and Learning Team are to:

  • Support all teaching staff across the academy;
  • Deliver subject-specific CPD sessions in their ‘home’ subject; 
  • Deliver CPD sessions outside their ‘home’ subject, sharing good practice and innovative pedagogy;
  • Deliver ‘Cluster’ CPD sessions each half-term which staff sign up to depending on their needs;
  • Work with all trainee teachers (School Direct, TeachFirst, OTT) and NQTs either as a mentor or supporting when needed;
  • Complete lesson observations, learning walks and book looks as part of the academy MER process – providing formative feedback with strategies to help staff improve their practice and maximise impact;
  • Work with teachers who are on the ‘Boost’ support programme;
  • Support teaching staff with their Action Research projects;
  • Run a whole-academy initiative for 2016-2017 – which is the basis of their own Action Research projects.
