Challenge Partners Review

Last week four reviewers came to observe teaching across the school. They were extremely impressed and the school achieved the outcome - LEADING

We were also accredited as being excellent at supporting EAL pupils to achieve excellence.


A snippet of our review report:

Teachers have established exceptionally warm relationships with their pupils and pupils are happy to reciprocate. Teachers know the pupils in their classes well, care a great deal about them and ensure that their wellbeing has the highest priority. This creates significant levels of mutual respect. Positive behaviours and attitudes to learning are universal features in all classrooms and are exemplary. Pupils are hungry to learn and love their teachers.

As one pupil stated, ‘Miss Forster picks the best teachers she can! They teach really well and explain everything clearly.’

Classroom processes and procedures are securely embedded. These range fromfrequent use of talk partners, enabling pupils to enthusiastically share their learning with their neighbours. The ‘silent hand’ strategy to gather pupils’ attention after discussions was observed in all rooms and was highly effective. Similarly, the silent countdown on the teachers’ hand signals the transition from the carpet back to their desks, which pupils enacted seamlessly.
