Teaching & Learning

Learning as a community in Christ.

As a learning community we live out our mission statement and strive for excellence in all aspects of teaching and learning.

At Saint John Fisher we are seeking to establish a consistent approach by all members of the school community that will ensure that students are taught in a stimulating, engaging and challenging environment; creating resilient and independent learners. We want our students to enjoy and thrive in a learning environment where they receive outstanding opportunities.

The best quality teaching and learning is what we strive for in our school. It is expected that staff plan imaginative and engaging lessons which are tailored and differentiated to meet the needs of different groups of learners in their classes. The school works hard to ensure that the most able are stretched and the least able fully supported so that all students can exceed their potential.

The opportunity for staff professional development, debate and sharing good practice is crucial to effective teaching and learning at Saint John Fisher. We encourage staff to take an active lead in researching and delivering INSET and learning programmes. The teaching and learning group informs, delivers and guides the teaching and learning agenda throughout the school.

We believe that good outcomes are directly related to positive relationships between students, parents and staff.
