The Ped Leaders Team was formed with a vision to share innovative and
effective classroom approaches to teaching and learning. Our aim is to
support and encourage the development of great teaching by generating a hub of
ideas, strategies and resources, to enhance exposure to exemplary teaching
and to assist in the development of opportunities for professional learning
through on site and online PD.
Some of the strategies and ideas that we share may be a regular feature in
your classroom, some may be a little different and build upon what you may
already be doing, and some may be completely new to you. Despite your
experience and current teaching approaches, we hope to provide you with enough
choice that you will gain at least a handful of practical strategies and
ideas that will be of value to you in your classroom.
The Ped Leaders vision will be driven by the Marginal Gains Through
TLCs framework which incorporates five key elements of great teaching and learning:
Collaboration; Creativity; Connections; Confidence and Challenge. Each member of the Ped
Leaders Team will focus upon one of these TLCs by facilitating CPD sessions as
well as the sharing of resources, ideas and great teaching across the academy.
We will cover two layers within each TLC: firstly, the professional development
of individual teachers and secondly, practical classroom approaches, resources
