Evidence Informed  Practices

at our school and

high quality resources

A large part of learning is changing our long term memory (whether this is skills, procedures, experiences, vocabulary or information). As we learn, we progress from remembering information, to knowing about that subject until we are able to reason with that knowledge and make links - building a schema of understanding.

As a staff, we use reseach and evidence based practice to guide our teaching practice.  On our INSET days, during our staff meetings and through continous professional development, we are looking at ways to ensure academic excellence in our teaching, based on research and high quality resources.  This then has an impact on what and how we teach.
