Teaching and Learning
At SFX we are fully committed to providing high-quality, personalised CPD for all members of staff in order to raise student achievement.
Using evidence-based practices we aim to ensure our CPD delivery is relevant and collaborative by identifying key strands in each academic year as a school focus.
The strands for this academic year are:
- Strand 1: Curriculum Implementation
- Strand 2: Personal development of the child
- Strand 3: Developing leaders at all levels
Alongside our planned CPD sessions monthly TeachMeets and our Leadership Programme offer opportunities for shared ownership or autonomy in key areas of our school development.
All school staff have membership to The National College and educational research is shared through regular SFXcellence updates and Research & Development bulletins.
We recognise that one of the key strengths of our school is our committed and highly professional workforce, who deliver superb teaching to all the students on a daily basis. New members of staff are given a two-day induction at St Francis Xavier School to support their start in school. Opportunities are also given to visit other teachers in the classroom to align best practices.
