  4. 4. High Expectations I expect students to be polite and courteous. Our current Year 7 and 8 students are participating in our Respect programme, whereby, students gain additional progress points for good manners and exemplary behaviour. I expect students to wear their uniform correctly and with pride, our uniform is clearly identifiable out in the community and our rules of conduct apply to travel to and from school.

They will be encouraged to develop skills of: ✓ Leadership, ✓ Organisation, ✓ Resilience, ✓ Initiative ✓ Communication.

  11. 11. ACED ✓ Assessment ✓ Creativity ✓ Engagement ✓ Differentiation Teaching and Learning Vision Our expectations ARE high. All lessons will encourage ASPIRATION, instil RESPECT and help all pupils ENDEAVOUR to realise their full potential, through developing a life-long love of learning.
  12. 12. ✓Assessment: Assessment should be used to provide feedback and direct or modify the learning and teaching in lessons. ✓ Creativity: Allows students to apply knowledge and develop skills needed for life outside of lessons. ✓Engagement: We want students to focus more on what is being taught and enjoy learning so that they can better process new information inside and outside of lessons. ✓ Differentiation: We must consider the needs of all students in every class, providing support, challenge and extension.
  13. 13. We believe that using the ACED framework will support learning and great outcomes for all. Three questions, I ask every teacher to consider when planning and delivering lessons : • Are all pupils being challenged? • Are all pupils making progress? • Are all pupils at least engaged and at best inspired?
  14. 14. House Systems Pankhurst Churchill MurrayHawking Rendall Our students are taught in sets, that are streamed to mixed ability groups .
