Parents and carers may be interested to know how we try to ensure that there is a good climate for learning in every St. Pancras classroom. The headteacher, supported by the assistant headteacher, are a constant presence in the classrooms, supporting teachers and support staff in making sure that the preconditions for learning are in place.
What are these preconditions?
They range from making sure that the children are comfortable and safe and that behaviour is good to high expectations and attention to detail.
The form we use to check these things can be accessed through the link below:
We believe that when the preconditions are right – and children are happy and secure – then children can learn better.
The school has a ‘Teaching and Learning’ policy intended to guide teachers in making sure that lessons are effective.
Effective practice on the part of teachers and teaching assistants at St. Pancras should always reflect:
Please bear in mind that the first of the elements above requires that teachers know where their pupils are, what they can do confidently and what they need to do next.
Then, in order to know where their pupils are, what they can do and what they need to do next, teachers must assess pupils regularly, frequently and accurately.
A good climate for learning depends upon high quality assessment, which loops back to the planning of the next lesson . . .
