Teaching and Learning Framework

At The Nottingham Emmanuel School, we are continually work hard to understand more about how children learn and to shape what happens in our classrooms according to that. We’ve committed an hour after school every week, not for meetings or administration, but to actively prepare for it together by discussing and planning great lessons. We’ve developed a common understanding of what makes great teaching – Emmanuel’s Teaching and Learning Framework – so that staff professional development and collaborative work is coherent and focused. This isn’t a case of reinventing the wheel – the framework draws together much well-established teaching practice, as well as some of the latest research about how our brains work.
