Take a look at the article entitled ‘Relighting the fire of learning: transformation of a school’ on page 14 in the latest edition of the UKEdChat magazine written by our very own principal, Mr Benedick Ashmore-Short.
‘…as leaders in school, we have a flame to reignite, protect and fan; that is the flame of learning.’
‘Staff need to be self-reflective and own their learning. Too often staff development is something that happens to teachers. It is not based on need and is generic with staff waiting for the next buzz word to appear. We created a learning blog for all staff that is a one-stop shop for all development around teaching and learning. A blog at hamfordteachingandlearningblog.wordpress.com that staff can dip into, where they will be challenged but with ideas that fuel the learning fire.’
