Here at Washington Academy we are committed to continuous improvement of our practice. We believe that what the student experiences when they are in the classroom is central to the service that and we provide and the role that we play within our community.
Many of our staff have opted to have their lessons videoed on a regular basis as a way of improving the accuracy with which they reflect on how effective their teaching is.
Our students are very comfortable with this and we invite them to comment in detail on their experience in lessons; this helps staff to get a fuller picture of the impact of their work.
By adopting this approach we firmly believe that improvements in our professional practice will be sustainable and most importantly have the greatest impact upon our students.
