What the school offers its staff

At Malcolm Arnold, we ensure that all teachers and leaders are able to draw on the sources of scholarly authority and reservoir of thought and practice that have been developed within their specialist subject communities though our Trust- wide subject communities. This involves engagement for teachers with their wider subject education community through subject associations, subject education journals, subject specific CPD on curriculum development and teaching. It also involves refreshing and constant renewal of subject knowledge, through reading and discussing scholarship, engaging in contemporary debates, and developing our own practice as teachers.

Subject and leadership communities are central to Malcom Arnold’s vision for curriculum and teacher development, whereby each subject community is made up of subject specialist teachers deeply engaged with curricular questions, renewing, and holding ownership of the Trust-wide curriculum and sustaining their own subject expertise. Through Trust-wide subject community meetings and in-school department meetings, all subject teachers and leaders have responsibility and involvement with the Trust-wide curriculum development. We work collaboratively in our curriculum decision-making, to draw upon collective expertise and minimise unnecessary workload.
