General Routines and Consistency

We believe that our students will learn best where there are consistent routines across every subject area. Each child will be settled into every lesson and be introduced to the learning outcomes for each lesson using the same language and routines.

Each child should understand the success criteria and learning outcomes for each lesson to help put each lesson in context and develop their skills of reflection and self-evaluation.

We prioritise literacy and numeracy as these are the key gateway skills that increase the future opportunities our students can access. Developing these skills is the responsibility of all staff at Breda Academy, not just the English and Maths teachers.

Our students are encouraged to be active and adventurous in their learning because we believe enjoyment enhances achievement. We recognise and reward success and we identify and intervene in underachievement at the earliest possible stage to ensure every student is successful.
