No doubt the summer will bring an opportunity to reflect on the last four months. In many respects, working as a teacher at this time is an out-of-body experience but hopefully September will bring us back to some kind of normality.
As we all read and digest the guidance and plan for full reopening, I wanted to share my thoughts of moving forward with T&L for September. For all of our students, now more than ever, high quality teaching will be fundamental to their success.
Attached to this Digest, is a plan which acknowledges both the guidance and the particular issues facing our staff and students on their return. Please read, reflect and offer further ideas to RLO. This is, of course, in addition to our ‘Brilliant Teaching and Learning’ development plan which fundamentally is to ensure that there is high quality teaching in all classrooms. In addition, I have attached are T&L Policy which was launched in December/January. It underpins everything that we do and needs to be our ‘go to’ in terms of priorities for our practice next year (the ‘moving forward plan’ also continues to maintain our focus on our policy).
This will also be discussed at Walton Connects on Thursday.
