Fielding Primary School and Nursery

Quality teaching in action

Visits

Leaders from other schools are welcome to visit Fielding to see the impact of our philosophy, ethos and teaching.  Key areas of outstanding practice include:

Values-based Education

Values-based schools seek to promote an educational philosophy based on valuing self, others and the environment through the consideration of an ethical values vocabulary.

Values are principles that guide behaviour. At Fielding adults are encouraged to model values and to give time for reflective practices. We believe that this empowers individuals to be effective learners and good citizens.

Our Values-based education philosophy underpins our work to actively promote fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those from all faiths, backgrounds and cultures.  A rounded programme of assemblies and events promote children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, enabling them to develop their own moral and ethical compass to guide what is right and what is wrong.  Talk to our pupils and teachers to see how VbE impacts on their learning and attitudes.

 

MindUp

MindUP™ helps pupils develop richer learning experiences.  Find out how we help improve pupils' focus and self-regulation.  Talk to pupils to see how they apply MindUp principles to their learning, attitudes, behaviour and life at home.

 

Visible Learning

How does the work of Prof John Hattie successfully impact on pupils' learning?  The school has completed a 2 year focus on implementing Visible Learning plus with Osiris Educational.  How can rubrics, WAGOLLs, SOLO taxonomy and reflection reduce teacher workload and increase pupil outcomes? 

"Thank you so much for your training last week. It was incredibly helpful and certainly made our next steps much clearer. The training that you gave us couldn't be faulted. You were open, supportive and the work that you have done works into our current timeline perfectly."
