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. This year St Aidan’s is working towards becoming a Thinking School so teachers have the tools to deliver high quality questioning, using visual tools to map out ideas and working collaboratively. As an accredited Thinking School, it is imperative to develop the right thinking mindset and ensure the learning environment is organised with effective resources in order to maximise pupil’ progress and achievement.
