SCHOOL CORE PURPOSE:

PERSONALISING LEARNING

At Hedingham School I have every opportunity to learn successfully and achieve my targets within a Personalised Learning Programme which has high expectations. It provides high quality:

1. Learning and Teaching from well-qualified, skilled teachers and associate staff:

  • Which motivates and challenges me
  • Which supports me with a curriculum that is appropriate to my personal needs and has a clear learning pathway
  • That allows me to enjoy my learning both actively and independently
  • In a safe, bright and attractive environment, with access to the latest technology

2. Assessment of my progress:

  • With targets that challenge me, support me and tell me how to improve
  • That gives me the chance to reflect on my own progress
  • With the opportunity for my parents/carers to discuss my progress with teachers and see my improvement online
  • That recognises and celebrates my achievements at every opportunity in a number of different ways

3. Information, Advice and Guidance from teachers and associate staff about:

  • How I learn best and how I can become a better learner
  • What my next step in education should be
  • How I can get a career that matches my skills and ambition

4. Active Citizenship Opportunities through:

  • A supportive mentoring programme from my personal tutor which supports my learning and social skills
  • A wide range of school clubs and societies
  • The opportunity to work with the local, wider and international community
  • The opportunity to express my opinions through student voice
