Learning

This section of the website is about Learning at Peters Hill and includes information about our curriculum.

We have a commitment to being a reserach informed school. As such, all of our teaching staff are involved in professional development around teaching and learning strategies. This includes accessing our school CPD library on a regular basis and focusing on the development of key principles. These are set out in the teaching and learning policy shown below. Our policy focuses on the development of the following 7 areas;

1. Learning Objectives and Outcomes

2. Direct Instruction

3. Questioning techniques

4. Feedback to move learning forward

5. Retrieval strategies and links to existing/previous learning

6. High impact teaching – resource and activity choices

7. Depth of learning and Challenge for all

Our curriculum teams partner with a range of associations to ensure that our decsion making is the best it can be. This includes working with other schools as needed. These teams hold 15 minute briefing workshops each week on a rota basis as a chance for staff to be continually updated on subject developments and best practice. We keep the development of teaching and learning across the school as a top priority for everyone. 

We also share half termly teaching and learning bulletins with staff to keep a sharp focus on the developements in teaching strategies across the school.

The links on the left hand side of the page will take you to each of our curriculum areas. Each area contains useful documents to show what we do and how we do it across the school. If you have any further questions about this then please do not hesitate to contact us.
