Dear Parents,

“Teachers have three loves: love of learning, love of learners, and the love of bringing the first two loves together.” ― Scott Hayden.

Saturday, 5 October was World Teachers’ Day. With this in mind, I thought this week’s newsletter should focus on the teaching and support staff that work tirelessly to ensure every student has the best educational experience at Compass school.

Recently we introduced Professional Learning Communities, these groups consisted of Primary and Secondary teachers researching, collaborating and sharing best practice in a range of teaching and learning strategies. These groups will meet on a regular basis throughout the year and this will culminate with each group sharing their findings with the rest of the teaching staff. This sharing of best practice will only have a positive impact on the quality of education provided by all teachers across the school.

In addition to these in-house development opportunities, our Primary staff are involved in professional development activities from a wide range of educational establishments. Within the Primary teaching staff we have:

  • Three teachers that have completed, or are currently studying, for their Masters in Education.
  • Six primary teachers that have visited and received training from both Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and The Juilliard School.
  • Three of our staff have been part of a year-long middle leadership program led by Nord Anglia University.
  • All of our primary teaching staff are participating in online courses provided by Nord Anglia Education.
  • Our Primary PE team are involved in further swimming coaching qualifications.
  • Three of our support staff are currently completing a post-graduate teaching qualification.
  • Two of our teachers are Google and Apple Accredited teachers.

This list is by no means exhaustive but I hope it illustrates the fact that as a school we are not only ambitious for our students, but for all members of our staff. I highlight this not only to reassure you of the quality of teaching staff employed at Compass but to show that we believe in the importance of life-long learning.

Have a great week.
