Tuesday afternoons have a new look at Wymondham High for the academic year 2014-15. Lessons end at 2.10 and CPD begins.
A CPD model based on collaborative enquiry has been adopted. This is in acknowledgement that while the exchanging of tips and solutions, the visiting of outside experts and the observation of colleagues play an important role in CPD, it is when teachers are active in the CPD process, experimenting and engaging in conversations based on classroom based evidence and the trial of new things, that real change happens and developments are made.
A four week rolling programme, consisting of three strands, is in place which provides opportunities for staff to engage in teaching and learning focused dialogue in cross curricular groups and departments. This is supported by a Teaching and Learning Briefing on Thursday mornings.
