Message from the Head of Secondary: It’s Getting Better All the Time...

19 January 2022

A message from our Head of Secondary, Chris Lowe.

All organisations want to get better at what they do. Our school is a very fine one indeed and our community can be rightly proud of the education and environment in which our young charges are growing up. Families provide a caring environment for children at home, and our teachers teach wonderful lessons for students to learn from in school. As parents and teachers though, we should always take time to reflect on the impact we are having on the young people in our care, and we should strive to be a little better at what we do each day. 

Within our school, our teachers encourage each other to learn new ways to teach children, to try new ideas in the classroom, to see if doing something a slightly different way might make it a little better for the students in the class.  As teams of teachers, whether that be a year group in the Primary School or a subject team in the Secondary School, teachers work together to create plans for how their area of the school will improve and change over a period of time. Those changes are rarely revolutionary, generally teams are ‘tweaking’ existing practice a little to see if trying something new might make a significant difference.    

Our students see this in their classrooms. They notice a teacher trying something different, offering new ways to learn, bringing something the students haven’t seen before into the lesson.  And it’s a fine example for our young people. It isn’t anyone else’s responsibility to make us better at what we do, it is our own responsibility to look to improve in whatever field of work we choose, in our relationships and friendships, in our hobbies and pastimes.  Being a ‘good example’ means many things. Trying to be better at what we do each day, is one of those things.
