Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

The school held a training day on Friday 3rd October.  All of the staff who have direct contact with students – advanced teaching support, pastoral managers and teachers - spent the day discussing the learning needs of every single student in the school.  It was truly awesome to watch over 70 people together in the hall having the time to talk about the young people we work with (and work for).  

I think schools (including Lady Lumley’s) often think about what they have to teach (the curriculum) and how they are going to teach it (the pedagogy) but we don’t give ourselves the breathing space to think about who we are teaching.  Teaching is an interactive process and knowing the learning needs of each student is essential if the teaching is going to create learning

Now we need to collate all the information we have and make sure it is available to all teachers.  This will add to the teachers’ knowledge of their students and allow them to tailor their lessons to the particular students in their lessons.

A particular thank you must go to Brian Davis who planned and organised the day and to all staff who contributed so much.
