'Learning to Learn'

'Learning to learn' was the focus of discussion between several OWL headteachers this week. Susan Hall (Lemington Riverside); Jane McFadyen (Newburn Manor); Louise Thompson (Simonside) and Mark Outterside (Waverley) met to plan a joint training day with the focus on pupil understanding of how they learn. They also oraganised their first cohort of 'teacher swaps' for the new term - four teachers from the schools will work together across the school year and have opportinites to teach in the four schools and to immerse themselves in life at another setting. Watch this space to see how this collaboration progresses.
