Pedagogical Model

The Pedagogical Model provides an overview of the learning cycle and holistic view of classroom practice and is a reference point for the implementation of the Essential Practice Principles. It is an integral part of the Trust’s Teaching and Learning Model.

Our Pedagogical Model defines what high quality teaching looks like. It is not a prescription for practice - it is a flexible model that can be easily modified for our different school settings, as well as different areas of learning.

The Pedagogical Model describes what effective teachers do in their classrooms to engage pupils in intellectually challenging work. It provides an overview of the learning cycle and breaks it down into five phases of instruction.
