We define good teaching as that which enables all of our pupils to make progress from their starting point and contributes, year on year towards their future successes.
Our teachers are as individual as our children but with shared school aims and a clear Christian vision they facilitate lessons that are interesting, engaging, build on prior learning and encourage a life long love of learning.
Great teaching goes hand in hand with timely and effective feedback and a clear well thought out long term plan for each curriculum area.
Teaching at St Philip's is monitored by Senior Leaders, Middle Leaders, Subject leaders and by asking children and parents for their views.
Teachers regularly observe each other, share good practise and visit other schools. We work with outside agencies, National Leaders, Local Leaders and learning partnerships as well as professional bodies to ensure that our teachers are as well supported as possible.
Great Teaching is at the heart of all that we do.
