The impact MoE has had on the school as a whole has been incredible. From the staff’s perspective we have all been enthused by this way of working. Staff have embraced all the training opportunities, and professional dialogue, and have had the opportunities to take risks in their classrooms, evaluate with colleagues, and then go back and try again!
There has been an overall heightening of their understanding of how learning is best facilitated, the level of discussion around school has become much more precise and challenging, the staff relating experiences/ideas etc to academic research/educational theory.
Through the project, members of staff have gained skills and confidence. Overall there is a BUZZ! From the pupils’ perspective they are much more engaged with learning. They are becoming more articulate, self-aware and able to develop and move ideas on. They use the words: “fun”, “adventure” and there is an evident degree of urgency in their work – it is real, meaningful and relevant!” Parents and Governors have been equally excited by the work and have had the chance to participate in sessions held for them.”
