Teaching and Learning

At Robert Barclay Academy our goal is simple, that ‘Every day we look, feel and behave like the best school’.

We believe that teaching and learning is at the heart of what we do. Our ethos at Robert Barclay Academy is underpinned by 3 simple strategies:

  1. High expectations of our students

We know that students will perform to the level of the teacher expectations so the higher these are the better.

  1. High standards of behaviour

We also know that high expectations builds confidence and self-esteem too.

Look smart, feel smart, act smart.

  1. Delivering challenging lessons 

Developing challenge within lessons aids both motivation and engagement.

We believe in developing students’ capacity to learn so that they become more independent as they progress through the school.  Students who understand how they learn and who are engaged in their subject, achieve higher levels of success.

There are simple and clear rules for behaviour in classrooms and around the school that all staff use.  Coupled with this, our reward system ensures that students are regularly caught ‘doing things right’ in terms of both behaviour and academic progress.

We have a highly dedicated staff of teachers who devote a great deal of their time to supporting and nurturing the students. They incorporate a wide range of teaching techniques into their lessons. We are passionate about ensuring our staff have access to regular professional development during INSET days and staff meetings, which supports our staff to ensure they consistently deliver lessons of the highest standard.
