Teaching and Learning - Secondary
At Serlby Park Academy teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do. Good teaching ensures the best possible outcomes for our students and as a result we are committed to all our teachers delivering ‘outstanding’ lessons.
Serlby Park Academy has dedicated senior staff who lead whole school quality assurance, professional training of teachers and performance management. The continued professional development of our teachers is of paramount importance to ensure that our students are engaged in a programme of varied learning experiences. Serlby Park Academy is fully committed to the development of new teachers entering the profession, thus training students following both the PGCE and Schools Direct route into the teaching profession.
The majority of lessons are deemed to be good or oustanding. Senior leaders pay attention to improving teaching and outcomes across all three phases, which results in good outcomes in external examinations. Senior leaders continue to have a high presence within lessons alongside embedded QA procedures that middle leaders carry out at a department level.
At Serlby Park Academy it is our aim that all students enjoy their time both inside and out of the class room. We actively encourage students at Serlby Park Academy to be fully involved in their education; it is important students take responsibility to drive their own learning in order to succeed. At Serlby Park Academy education is a two-way process where we endeavour to lead our students to their goals and dreams, encouraging them to take responsibility for their own learning. Student Voice gives our teachers and managers an opportunity to listen and if appropriate adapt our styles and approaches to meet their needs and ultimately their success. In our most recent surveys undertaken with both students and parents, the results inform us that the teaching and learning provision at Serlby Park is considered to be good or outstanding.
We believe in the quality of the provision we offer at the Academy provides the best possible start to their lives.
