At Haywood Academy our T&L principles set Relentlessly High Expectations, consider Retrieval Practice in our Review strategies, allow the teacher to be the expert with our Ask strategy of Direct Instruction & Questioning, supported by excellent scaffolding and modelling to ensure students make progress through our Show & Do strategies.

We have a supportive developmental culture for all staff through our ‘Professional Growth’ strategy. Our professional growth strategy focuses on 3 distinct areas of T&L, Leadership & Inclusion. All of these pathways can be accessed by every member of our staff body and staff have a level of autonomy to decide their own professional growth journey.
