Teaching & Learning

At the heart of St Aidan’s is the desire to pursue excellence by meeting the learning needs of every pupil, so that they are inspired to grow into independent learners and make outstanding progress.

Our vision is to ensure high standards for every learner in a stimulating and active learning environment. Staff across all subjects and year groups share a consistent approach to teaching and learning, providing substantial challenge for all pupils as well as providing an appropriate level of guidance and support where necessary. The key components of a typical lesson are included in this section, enabling you to gain an insight into the experiences of our pupils whilst also highlighting the way teachers assess pupil progress and inform their planning of subsequent lessons.
