Our Motto is...
'... and the main thing is learning'
We are fortunate enough to have an inspiring INSET day led by Mike Hughes in January 2017 based on his book 'And the Main Thing is ... Learning'.
This book argues that the future, in terms of both pedagogy and policy, demands an approach rooted in learning. More specifically, it suggests that:
- everything we do must be based explicitly upon learning
- teachers must be learners too
- we have a professional responsibility to go on learning about learning, because the better we understand learning and the learning process the better able we are to facilitate it in others. (Mike Hughes 2006)
