Learning at Tapton
A culture of excellent teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do at Tapton.
Everyone's learning matters to us and we are proud to make a difference to the personal development of our students. We have high expectations and we know that learning goes hand in hand with relationships and trust. We make learning exciting, engaging and inspirational. Quality first teaching has been proven over and over again to have the biggest impact on student attainment and outcomes, we therefore invest heavily in staff development.
Learning is not the sole preserve of the classroom. Learning outside of the classroom is of equal value. Through this we foster a lifelong love of learning and the independence and flexibility our students need to embark upon a bright future.
Our staff work together as a professional community to ensure the best outcomes for all. We recognise that we are all learners with the capacity to develop and improve. Our teachers collaborate to form a shared understanding of what great teaching and learning looks like.
Our Teaching and Learning Principles have been developed by our teachers in collaboration with colleagues from across Tapton School Academy Trust. They inform our professional development programme and help us evaluate our lessons.
