Students should be taught how to learn and how to reflect and improve on their learning.
Learning objectives must be shared and reviewed.
Clear structured lessons promote learning.
Learning activities should be varied, purposeful and personalised to meet the needs of all students.
Achievement must be recognised and rewarded.
All students are capable of achievement. Identifying and challenging underachievement is the responsibility of all teachers and Learning Mentors. High expectations are not enough on their own; action is needed to ensure they are met, including high quality home learning.
Teachers must ensure a purposeful learning environment is maintained.
Cover work must be set to ensure purposeful learning is maintained in the teacher’s absence.
Each of these areas are explored in detail in the next section of this policy. (see download link below)
