Our Approach to Learning
The key starting point for any learning is the recruitment and subsequent employment of high quality practitioners who put children first and subscribe to their own continuing professional development. The Trust expects all staff to engage in learning of their own. We are not into gimmicks or the latest fad in pedagogy, we endorse approaches that have been researched fully and have sustained impact in the classroom. The Trust is passionate about developing all types of intelligence and skill. We want children to experience every kind of learning and every kind of influential person and place.
Developing the people within the Trust and enabling them to learn from, engage in professional discussion and refine their practice will result in teaching that is as perfectly matched as it can be to every pupil. We will unlock the ability to acquire basic skills and provide a unique scaffold in resilience, courage and reflection to move beyond the basics and into the realm of life-long learning.
Support for leadership to enable such an approach is fundamental. The Headteacher of the school that wishes to join us would be paired up with the other Principals in the hub and would also have the support of the Executive Principal of that hub. This group would act as mentors and advisors and support the new school to implement the central systems of the Trust.
