Learning modes

Our Learning Modes are used to maximise learning through making clear expectations of behaviour during lessons. These modes cover all aspects from group work to independent work. By being employed in every classroom it means all students are aware of the expectations and improves concentration and focus.

We have four learning modes:

  • Respectful Whole Class – this is when the teacher is leading the learning. students track the speaker, listen intently to what is being taught and answer all questions.
  • Independent Silent Study – this is used for students to work on their own in order to embed the skills and knowledge that are key to success in the lesson.
  • Quiet Partners – students discuss the learning with their peers on either side of their seat.
  • Polite Table Groups – students discuss the learning with their peers in a larger group.
