Professional Growth Approach
As an organisation we are committed to a professional development model which supports our teachers at all stages in their career and provides the opportunity for growth.
Our pedagogical principles are research-informed and our vehicle for growth is instructional coaching.
Instructional coaching has an extensive evidence base both in terms of improving student outcomes as well as creating the conditions for improving teachers’ sense of self-efficacy and work experience.
It therefore fits perfectly with our mission to ‘improve outcomes and transform lives’ and we want to do this for both our pupils and our staff through personalised and impactful professional development.
We view consistent and honest feedback as a form of care for our staff; we believe in a culture of trust and openness to feedback where all teachers strive to improve by continuously refining their practice.
