Teaching at Churchdown School
“Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better.” - Dylan Wiliam
Churchdown never stands still. We are always seeking to improve and refine our offer to the students and staff here. Each year we continue to make progress, and this is down to the skills and attitudes of our colleagues and their relentless focus on self-improvement. Our impressive Progress 8 score helps illustrate the impact of our combined efforts and the doors we have opened for our students. However, we are always looking forward and acknowledge as a school that it is about the students of now and the exceptional educational provision and care we put in place every lesson, every day. Therefore, it is crucial that we plan and deliver a bespoke CPD programme for our teachers which responds to the best of educational research and the demands of the students in Churchdown School.
Here Alex Trainer, Assistant Headteacher for Learning and Teaching, explains our perspective on pedagogy and our CPD focus. Our aim at Churchdown is simple: every teacher is an expert in our high impact teaching and learning strategy. Therefore, all our students experience consistently high-quality learning, every lesson, every day.
As part of our commitment to continuing professional development, we have our own bespoke Teaching and Learning website, filled with high quality examples and strategies to ensure our staff can work together to provide the very best classroom experience for our students.
Are you passionate about working with young people? Can you inspire our students and foster a lifelong love of learning? Are you committed to achieving success for all? If so, Churchdown School could be the perfect place to continue your career.
