Celebrating great practice through enquiry

March 24th, 2017

Being part of the Enquire Learning Trust is like being part of a big family. We work with professionals from across the Trust to share practice that enhances learning and, ultimately, impacts positively upon our children. One of the many benefits of belonging to our Trust is that we are challenged. Our practice, both at leadership level and in classrooms, is scrutinised and discussed on a regular basis. Our successes are celebrated and shared and we are given opportunities to demonstrate the improvements we have made that make a difference to our children. Three times a year, an Enquiry Walk takes place. This is where professionals from within the Trust, including Executive Directors, Principals, Vice Principals and teachers from other Enquire Learning Trust academies delve into the detail of our work. Throughout the course of a day, they visit all classes, speak with children and look at children’s work. They discuss the strategic development of all areas of the school and hold leaders to account. Although this sounds daunting, it is a hugely positive experience – it validates our work, enabling us to celebrate what we do well and take time to reflect upon practice. On Tuesday, we invited five Trust professionals into school and were delighted with their feedback. They recognised the hard work that has led to our children being fabulous learners. They were amazed at the learning dispositions of our children and the fact that they are able to use the support within their learning environment to get themselves ‘unstuck’. They were delighted to see how well children collaborate, helping one another with their learning. They were also impressed with how adults ensure that learning environments and activities are purposeful and aid learning. Our learning walls reflect current learning, offering children scaffolds and aids for when they are unsure or need additional support, as well as being used to showcase excellent examples of work. All in all, the Enquiry Walk was hugely successful and the hard work of adults and children alike was recognised. Thank you to our Roseberry family.
