What the school offers its staff

At Notre Dame the ongoing professional development of all staff is a key priority. Our view is that we can always improve, not because we are not good enough but because we can be even better at what we do and that this in turn will ensure the very best outcomes for our students. We also aim to help staff to be ready for their ‘next step’ in their careers whatever that might be.

In order to achieve these aims we;

  • have an ethos of ‘learning together’ through joint practice development which is conducted in a supportive and developmental way. Staff are encouraged to take risks and use research and evidence based approaches to improve their classroom practice.
  • Encourage staff to be reflective and take the lead in their own professional development so that their individual needs are met
  • Assign Learning improvement coaches to all departments to provide bespoke training and development
  • Have an ECT programme to fully support those new to the profession. This involves meeting together in groups to share and develop best practice and working with a coach on an individual basis
  • Provide trainee mentoring programmes for those moving in to new positions for example middle and senior leadership
