Townsend Teaching 5
What makes good teaching at the school?
Everything we do in the classroom is underpinned by Townsend’s values:
Respect for all
Achievement for all
At Townsend, we do not believe there is only one way to deliver a great lesson. We strongly believe in ensuring that the needs of every child are met. We have used research and professional experience to develop a rigorous Teaching and Learning Pedagogy.
We have therefore developed the Townsend Teaching 5, which forms the basis of teaching at our school, and ensures a learning environment where all children can achieve.
Routines in the classroom are crucial to develop good learning habits in students. We have incorporated methods and practice from cognitive science to support memory, routines and learning in our lessons.
‘ We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit’
