Why join Ark Evelyn Grace Academy?

Great schools have to grow students and staff. If we want pupils to learn, we have to ensure that our teachers are nurtured and their craft developed. We must look after and create the necessary conditions for our teachers to grow so that they can help pupils learn.

It is part of our DNA that we learn best when we learn together.

Consistency of practice and agreement over shared values and mission is achievable by working, planning, training and teaching together. It might begin with a whole staff and training session, where messages are shared, however, unless this is followed up with observation, feedback and practice, these elements of a teachers’ craft will never become embedded and automatic.

There are a number of guiding principles when thinking about how to create a community of learners and these underpin all our staff development.

These are:

  • We learn best when we learn together

  • We all learn from our mistakes and should model this to our pupils

  • We must see teaching as a craft that one can always get better at, as ‘one lifetime is never enough to master it’

  • We all have something to teach others and, so an NQT can learn from a Vice Principal and vice versa.

  • We develop our craft best through observation, feedback and deliberate practice
