Founder Staff – training and induction begins
This week saw the beginning of our pre-opening staff induction programme – and what a week it has been!
One of our core beliefs is ‘Teaching and Learning is the Main Thing’, and this has very much been the message of our first week of training.
Teachers make the biggest difference in any school and we agree with Dylan Williams that ‘an effective school is essentially a school full of effective classrooms’. Of course, outstanding teaching will only happen if a curriculum delivers powerful learning experiences -so all week we have been exploring and putting in to practice the principles of successful curriculum planning to ensure that the experiences we offer our students are of a world class standard.
Training has been intensive but rewarding, and everyone is now looking forward to furthering their work next week when we will finally be in our new building!
