Continuing Professional Development
It is clear that outstanding schools who deliver outstanding practice and student progress year-on-year are based on one key foundation – continuous school based CPD. It is our ambition to be a Trust of outstanding schools and practitioners providing aspirational, transformational education for every one of our students. To do this we must all work together to share and improve so that attainment and individual progress improves for all of our schools and students.
The quality of learning and teaching is central to achieving this goal. As colleagues within the Trust, we are committed to providing opportunities for our students to truly achieve their potential and not only raise aspirations but actually deliver them. To achieve this we must continue to challenge and develop our own practice.
This commitment ensures we are constantly striving for ‘Great’ learning and teaching that is not constrained by external parameters or past experiences.
- 19th June 2015 – We came together to hear from speakers that challenged our preconceptions of teaching, and offered techniques that support us to be truly transformational.
- 4th January 2016 – We worked as one trust to embed our learning in departments across all of our schools. We learnt from our own areas of best practice. We looked at opportunities to develop as professionals and support each other.
- 1st July 2016 – We met as a Trust for the third time to focus not only on our students, but also on our staff team. We took the time to invest in ourselves, in our personal wellbeing as well as in our professional development.
- 9th January 2017 – we met together as a Trust for the fourth time to collaborate as departments across the Trust. We will have time to consider developments and techniques within our individual subject areas as well as share best practice and resources with our colleagues.
