Teaching Staff

Within St. Andrew’s N.S. we are very fortunate to have a skilled, committed and highly qualified teaching team.

Class teachers plan their programmes of work for delivery during the school year. Plans involve long term schemes of work (for the school year or term), medium term plans (for a month or fortnight) and short term plans (compiled on a daily basis). These plans contain learning aims and objectives, skills to be taught, teaching methodologies, teaching/learning resources, subject differentiation and assessment of learning and, where appropriate, use of the local environment. At the end of each month class teachers compile a monthly progress record of the work completed during the month.

Resource and Learning Support teachers plan in similar detail for individual pupils and groups of pupils under their care. They also compile comprehensive progress records for each child.

St. Andrew’s N.S. is committed to supporting the concept of continuing professional devleopment of staff through:

- Supporting teacher attendance at seminars and courses on areas relating to pupil learning and support.

- Providing teachers with opportunities to teach at different class levels and within different teaching contexts in the school.

- Facilitating professional collaboration among staff members where they share expertise.
