Quality Assurance System – WISE Academies have outstanding leaders within their family of schools. A key benefit of the multi-academy trust is that staff can quality assure the work of others. Teaching and learning reviews will be conducted by senior staff from across WISE Academies. This provides parity in judgements and professional development for those involved. This same principle applies to ensuring the accuracy of teacher assessment in relation to assessment data, most notably for Early Years Foundation Stage Profile and end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 data. WISE Academies also value external school review and this will be used as part of the drive to improve standards of teaching and learning and to further quality assure judgements of staff.
Teaching and Learning – We are committed to learning for all, pupils and staff alike. Basic skills of numeracy and literacy are a key part of our curriculum and are essential for academic success. Children learn through a topic based curriculum where first-hand experience puts learning into context. This engages and motivates children and ensures that the learning is embedded. Children will work together and in different situations to apply their learning in problem solving and other activities. A strong staff development and monitoring programme will ensure standards are high. Expertise from across the WISE family will be shared with staff exchanging best practice.
Enrichment of Curriculum – WISE recognises that all children have their own unique character and talents. We will provide opportunities for individual development though a range of activities within and outside of school. A wide range of sports opportunities will be made available; musical skills will be taught; innovative ICT will engage children; and many after school activities will add to the school experience. Educational visits both local and further afield are also a regular part of the WISE way.
Engagement of Community – WISE operates an open-door policy with parents, carers and the local community. We want to hear your views. We also have dedicated Child and Family Liaison Officers to build strong relationships, and support children and families through a variety of activities and programmes.
Summary – WISE Academies is determined to create outstanding academies and every effort will be made to transform them into a first class organisations where all children achieve highly and are well equipped for the next phase of their education, and to meet the challenges of the wider world.
