Examples Of Support

Whole School Transformation

The NTSA offers one-day or residential evening / day visits to look at a number of whole – school initiatives which lead to ‘school transformation’ because they combine to create a learning culture.

In a school setting, we begin by examining the broad brushstrokes which have led to school improvement at Ninestiles Academy Trust, then focus more specifically on four major initiatives (in no particular order):

  1. Behaviour for Learning
  2. Assessment for Learning
  3. ICT across the Curriculum
  4. System Re-Design

There will be an opportunity to have a tour of the school, meet and discuss elements with key staff and meet some of our students.

Behaviour for Learning

Ninestiles Academy Trust offers a day’s visit to look at one particular whole – school initiative which played a major part in our own transformation because it created the basis for our learning culture.

The day will begin by examining some of the broad brushstrokes which have led to school improvement across Ninestiles Academy Trust, thus putting in context our main focus on Behaviour for Learning.

There will be an opportunity to have a tour of the school, meet and discuss elements with key staff and meet some of our students who will speak openly about our behaviour system!

Assessment for Learning including ‘Life after Levels’

We offer a part-day visit to look at an approach to assessment in which students are truly partners in their own learning.

Assessment for personalised learning means treating all students as individuals and creating an ongoing, differentiated dialogue between every teacher and every student so that there are no more grey students in our classes.

There will be an opportunity to have a tour of the school, meet and discuss elements with key staff and meet some of our students who will speak openly about our behaviour system!

ICT Across the Curriculum
