Teaching & Learning


Proud to Belong … Proud to Achieve

Aspiration – Challenge - Excellence

All students at Woolmer Hill School are entitled to an aspirational curriculum and quality of teaching that challenges and supports individuals to be the best they can be.

Our teaching and learning model is known as ‘Flow Learning’ and was created and developed by teaching and learning teams from across the Weydon Multi-Academy Trust. The model is based on the use of evidence informed best practice and is designed to have maximum impact on student progress and attainment.

The three key elements of a Flow Learning lesson are:

  • Subject passion and pedagogy
  • The power of planning and explanation
  • Responsive teaching

These will be underpinned by a basic foundation of:

  • High expectations and professional relationships
  • Exceptional behaviour for learning and professional relationships

Teaching and learning at Woolmer Hill is supported by a comprehensive culture of continual professional development that supports staff to build expertise in their subject specialism as well as pedagogy.

All teaching staff are members of teaching and learning groups designed to constantly develop elements of our ‘Flow Learning’ model by researching and implementing the latest evidence informed best practice.
