Park High School transforming practice in a variety of teaching approaches

We are delighted that our school has been accredited with 'Transforming Practice in a Variety of Teaching Approaches’. We met the highest standards of the SSAT Framework for Exceptional Education and our work in this area is amongst the most effective practice nationally.

SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network) aims to ensure the future of education is shaped by high-quality practice and research within the profession. Here are a few of the things our two moderators noticed about our staff, our students and the school when they visited:

‘The extent in which oracy, reading, speaking and literacy has been developed and embedded across the entire curriculum from KS3 to KS5 including tutor time is transformational…Through creative approaches and pedagogy, a variety of innovative teaching strategies based around literacy were observed across numerous departments and at every key stage…Students explained how oracy skills, confidence and reading has developed and supported them across the curriculum. The Ignite programme was particularly positive; testing the comfort boundaries for all students in year 7 and setting a high standard of expectation in public speaking and speech writing. Students explained how the reading groups, dictation, spelling and discussion time, literacy lessons and the changes within subjects led also by the English department has allowed them to access the curriculum more effectively.’  

‘I was particularly impressed by the inclusive nature of the work around literacy and oracy. The moral purpose behind the need to improve literacy and communication was clear for all to see. The focus on these areas was not an add-on, or a model to enhance exam results, but a true drive to improve the lives of the young people at Park High. This was something that was clear from meeting with many staff and students, who all echoed this same message.’

'Congratulations to you and all your staff on this impressive achievement.'

Thank you to all our staff for their continuing support in this important area of the school development.
