Teaching and Learning – ‘Non Negotiables’

When teaching at Brayton C of E Primary School we promise that teachers will:

  • plan together in year groups so that all children have an equal experience.
  • differentiate the work so that there is challenge and support for all children.
  • not keep the KS1 children on the carpet for more than 10 minutes.
  • not keep the KS2 children on the carpet for more than 15 minutes.
  • draw together the learning with a plenary of some kind during or at the end of the learning session.
  • encourage children to ask questions and to take part in independent study.
  • mark and feedback on the work completed.
  • either work with a guided group of children or intervene and help with the learning of all the groups while they are working throughout the lesson.
  • encourage children to work quietly and use an indoor voice inside the buildings.
  • share and explain the Learning Objectives for the lesson.
  • encourage the children to be active and have high levels of participation.
  • ensure that their subject knowledge is sound.
  • stick to the school policies.
  • use good quality visual aids and appropriate resources.
  • take children outside to learn whenever possible.
  • use IT wherever appropriate.
  • utilise the expertise and support of other adults available.
  • refer to British Values and the church school ethos wherever appropriate
