Teaching and Learning policy


Teaching and Learning Policy

“Belong, Believe, Become.”


At Snainton we aim to provide our pupils with an inclusive and aspirational education. To do this our teachers will plan high quality learning experiences based on our 4 year curriculum plan. These plans will ensure a breadth of opportunities including those related to our curriculum drivers chosen by staff, parents and pupils.

  • Sports and Outdoor Education
  • The Environment
  • Local and Global communities.

We aspire to delivering outstanding teaching through a range of activities which engage pupils and motivate them to investigate, explore and create. We will assess on a cyclical basis in order to support and extend learning including using targeted and measurable intervention. We will do this in a safe, purposeful environment which leads to outstanding behaviour and learning. Parent’s knowledge of their children will be valued and we will work in partnership to develop the whole child.

Leaders will

  • Ensure all stakeholders have had a part in forming this policy and know their responsibilities
  • Ensure that monitoring of teaching and learning is effective
  • Hold teachers to account so that they can do their best for pupils
  • Budget effectively to provide good resources for learning
  • Develop strengths through sharing good  practise in our school and outside
  • Know each child and their needs very well
  •  Continue to provide a safe, caring atmosphere based on Christian values as we move towards an Outstanding judgement for our conduct and learning behaviour
  • Work with parents closely enabling them to support their children to reach our expectations
  • Share our behaviour policy with everyone
  • Communicate well with parents and carers and invite them to share their views on how we can do better

  • Expect pupils to present their work with care and pride.
  • Display good work to inspire others including work done at home
  • Regularly assess against national and school expectations to understand the next step in learning for pupils

Pupils will
