Teaching and Learning at Ravens Wood School
- The overarching aim for Teaching and Learning at Ravens Wood School, is that all students are given the opportunity to learn through consistently good or better teaching.
- The Teaching and Learning Team’s ethos is one of high challenge and high support. High challenge meaning having the high expectation that all students receive consistently good or better lessons and the high support is offered through a wide ranging offer of CPD throughout the year, including opportunities for one to one coaching and mentoring.
- The Ravens Wood School approach to Teaching and Learning is through planning lessons using ‘Hook, Line and Thinker’. This strategy ensures that all students can engage with the lesson and begin thinking immediately, that they follow a line of enquiry and are encouraged to be active learners and that they reflect on their learning and progress regularly, embedding and consolidating what they have learnt.
- Consistency is key for Teaching and Learning at Ravens Wood School, which is why all lessons are expected to follow ‘Hook, Line and Thinker’ throughout all Key Stages.
