    Balby Central Primary School Policy for Teaching and Learning Date of Policy: October 2014 Approved by the Governing Body: Review Date: October 2015    KEY HEADINGS So that children can be the best they can be, we encourage and help them to develop into creative, lively, interesting and interested people who engage proactively in learning and who are caring and compassionate. We help them to develop key learning superpowers through our teaching and their learning:-   Confidence   Determination   Resilience   Collaboration   Talk   Effort   Reflection We see good teaching  as an evolving and complex process, constantly trying to match our resources  –  including our own knowledge, skills, time and energy  –  to the needs of the children and the essential learning needed to succeed in the educational system. This is a professional process involving all adults in the school developing and learning and it is never complete. Children’s needs, curriculum  ideas, policy decisions, technology and the role of school in society are all areas open to radical and rapid change and we constantly revaluate our thinking and practice in light of this. This includes continual renewal and improvement of our knowledge, expectation, planning, use of resources, assessment, use of time, questioning skills, use of technology and repertoire of approaches. We see good learning  as an active and creative process, with children ready to learn, engaging and coming forward, developing resilience, resourcefulness and reflectiveness and able to take responsibility for their own learning and achievement. We help children to develop the flexibility and thoughtfulness needed to select the best approach from their increasing bank of learning skills and strategies. We understand that a range of learning is essential  –  across subjects and disciplines and in intensity. We help children to have deep learning experiences that are memorable and significant and build key knowledge and skills. This policy links with other policies  in the school, including planning, assessment, recording and reporting, marking, SEN, individual curriculum policies, monitoring and observation, behaviour and display.    Teaching and learning map TEACHERS Inspiring Making work relevant real and enjoyable Challenging KEPRAT QTR PUPILS Proactive, independent and aspirational Pride, enthusiasm and resilience Immersion in learning Deep enjoyment and learning PARENTS Informed partners Shared interest in children’s learning and achievement Supporting / challenging school and children SCHOOL Systems and structures Intrinsic and extrinsic rewards Sanctions    This policy describes how effective teaching and quality learning is encouraged and led by the staff at Balby Central Primary. Through this policy, we seek to meet the school aims in a consistent and ordered way. It underpins all curriculum policies and is fully compatible with all other policies. INTRODUCTION  At Balby Central Primary School we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the notion that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone; it should be fun and interesting but also challenging. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives, with immersion in deep learning being a key element of happiness  –   the concept of ‘flow’.   SCHOOL AIMS Balby Central Primary aims to work in partnership with its children to enable them to:   Be motivated and confident individuals, who are excited by learning and achieve well   Take pride in their achievements and aspire to be the best they can be, wherever their starting place is   Respect and celebrate different opinions, attitudes and cultures   Face challenges with confidence in their own abilities and persevere in overcoming them   Recognise that they need to work hard in order to achieve highly   Form positive relationships and make responsible life choices   Compromise and show both compassion and understanding of the difficulties faced by others   Be positive, active and considerate members of society   Be responsible for their actions and aware of how others can be affected by what they do   Enjoy life and the opportunities that come their way EFFECTIVE LEARNING We acknowledge that children learn in a variety of ways and we recognise the need to develop strategies that allow all children to learn in ways that best suit them. We offer opportunities for children to learn in different ways. These include:   Investigation and problem solving   Whole class work   Research and finding out   Questioning   Group work   Paired work   Individual work   Use of ICT
