Governors’ Learning Walk

On Friday 27 April staff and students welcomed a group of 6 of our governors to conduct ‘learning walks’ across the school. The purpose of this was for the group to look at teaching and learning, as well as behaviour and standards across the site. The governors visited over 12 lessons in total and stayed for lunch in Kipling Arena. As a leadership team we regularly carry out learning walks to check the climate for learning, ensure lessons are taught well and that standards of behaviour are high. Our findings are always fed back directly to staff so that we can continue to improve our provison. At our governing body meetings governors present a regular item on teaching and learning supported by our own internal evidence and that of our school improvement officer. The governor learning walks help validate this information and give a rich opportunity for them to see us at work and experience the typicality of life here for our students. The students were very polite and welcoming to our guests and the governors were impressed with what they saw. We are grateful for the suggestions they gave which we will feed back to staff and ensure are fully taken on board.
 
The governors were impressed with our approach to differentiation in lessons. We follow a three way differentiation approach so that main tasks are set up to be achieved in one of three ways. This enables the work to be fully accessible to all learners. The group was confident that this was evident across the board and saw opportunities for stretch and challenge in many lessons.  They noted that learning objectives were clear in each lesson visited and that pupils behaved well. They were pleased that the environment for learning was positive and that students felt safe and secure with their learning. They also noted that there was no evidence of mobile phones. 
 
Some of the areas that we could improve on include having posters up in each room about our behaviour expectations. In some lessons a few students dominated, answering the teachers questions and so we need to look at this, and they thought that some teaching was a  little too didactic. All individual feedback will be given to staff. We are on a continuous journey of improvement here at Hampton High. We take all feedback on board to strive to make this an outstanding learning environment.
