Our Shared Pedagogy

Pedagogy is simply a technical term which refers to the method and practice of teaching. Having a well-thought-out pedagogy improves the quality of our teaching and the way our children learn. Being mindful of the way we teach also helps us better understand how to help children achieve deeper learning.

At Stanningley Primary School we have developed a set of 8 shared pedagogical approaches which ensure adults are teaching in a consistent way across school, and that all our children are able to learn effectively and make progress, enabling them to retain more knowledge and skills, which ultimately will allow them to go onto higher learning and find gainful, well-paid employment. 

Having the same pedagogy across every class ensures there is consistency in the way we teach, in the way we behave and in the way we apply our rules, from Early Years right through to Year Six, which hugely benefits both pupils and staff. 

However, we understand every class and every child is different, so our pedagogy is designed to be flexible, giving our teachers the tools for each individual situation and the ability to adapt the strategies to fit their circumstances, while still adhering to the underlying rationale of our shared pedagogy. 

We have developed a set of 8 shared pedagogical approaches, which we have put together to form our Pedagogical Postcards. Please follow the link below to view these in detail.
