Teaching and Learning
At Djanogly Learning Trust we know that our core purpose as an academy trust is teaching and learning. We always aim for all our children to have a wide breadth of exciting and high quality learning experiences while they attend our academies.
We know that children learn in different ways and at Djanogly Learning Trust we provide a rich and varied curriculum that allows children to develop to their full potential. We use a variety of teaching strategies that include but are not limited to;
Investigation and problem solving
Group and paired work
Trips and visitors to inspire
Debate, role play and oral presentations
We encourage children to take responsibility for their own learning; to be involved as far as is possible in reviewing their learning and to reflect on how they learn best. Our teachers, teaching assistants and learning mentors work in close partnership to ensure that the learning needs of all children are met. Good practice is shared across individual academies and across the Trust as a whole. All staff have the opportunity to visit other settings and network with colleagues across the Trust.
Effective assessment provides information to improve teaching and learning for all children. We assess children regularly to inform teaching, provide feedback and communicate progress to the children themselves and their parents/carers. Assessment takes many forms from dialogue with individual children to marking of work to end of year tests. All forms are carried out in a supportive way to inform next steps for each child, class or cohort. It is incorporated systematically into teaching strategies in order to assess progress and diagnose need. Assessment is only effective if there is regular review, communicated and acted upon at all levels.
