At Sandringham, we have always been interested in the answer to the question ‘what makes great teaching and learning?’ Our brilliant teachers bring so much insight to this question.
In addition, the work of Professor Rob Coe (e.g. The Sutton Trust’s What Makes Great Teaching? , 2014) and Evidence Based Education’s Great Teaching and Learning Evidence Review, 2020) and that of the Education Endowment Foundation have really helped us define things.
We have developed a framework which sets out what we think are the four most important things a teacher can do to ensure great teaching and learning in their classrooms. These are:
Sandringham teachers know the curriculum
Sandringham teachers build great relationships
Sandringham teachers maximise opportunities for students to learn
Sandringham teachers teach for long term learning
