Here at Cogenhoe, we pride ourselves on ensuring that we are continually developing all of our staff professionally to enable them to deliver the highest quality of teaching. Our teaching assistants are also involved in any training that we deliver, as they too are highly valued in our school and enable our children to really achieve their full potential.

Throughout the year, our leaders hold TRG’s which are based around the modelling of effective teaching practice. Pre and post discussions are also held to enable staff to have a professional dialogue surrounding the systems and ideas. Furthermore, we seek feedback from the children themselves and what they found helped them most within the lesson. They are the most important people in this process!

We want our staff to have the flexibility to take risks in their teaching, trial new things and most importantly, to continue to develop in their own teaching practice.

Our first round are now complete and we are already looking forward to the next one. The children have loved being taught by different teachers for the session.
