Teaching and Learning at TMWS

At TMWS we are keen to develop our teachers’ professional practice and therefore enhance and improve the experience that your child receives in the classroom. We do this though a collaborative approach in which we share ideas and resources with our colleagues. Teacher performance is regularly monitored and assessed through observations and learning walks and where areas are identified for improvement support is put in place.

A key vehicle for improvement is the Teaching and Learning Group. This group meets regularly to focus on improving and aspect of classroom practice. Typical topics include questioning, stretching the most able, differentiation and engaging boys. All staff engage with educational research into what makes the most effective teaching.

We are always looking to others to share best practice and have developed a partnership with Specialist Leaders of Education through the Wolds Learning Trust based at Woldgate College and The Wolds Teaching School Alliance based at South Hunsley School. This ongoing reflective practice supports our staff to be the best they can be.

“A Clear, intense and highly effective focus on improving the quality of teaching and learning is the only thing that will really make a difference to student outcomes”
