TEEP will be supported by curriculum advancements in years 5 to 8, designed to enable students to make excellent transitions from primary to secondary education. Strengthened assessment arrangements, facilitated by collaboration of teachers across the Trust, will improve the accuracy of data so that early intervention and additional support can be provided to students.
Teachers from the Trust’s three secondary academies, The Burgess Hill Academy, The Hastings Academy and The St Leonards Academy, attended the launch event, which outlined the programme, including plans to extend it to its primary and infant academies.
Helen Howard, Executive Director of School Improvement, said: “I firmly believe that the biggest impact on student outcomes is excellent teaching and learning. This new programme marks an exciting initiative for the Trust, by supporting our teachers through quality training and collaborative working”.
Dr John Smith, Chief Executive said: “Our staff do amazing things every day to support students and pupils, their families and the community. I am delighted that this programme will provide new opportunities for high quality professional development, collaboration and sharing of excellent practice so that our students are inspired to meet their potential.”
