By joining an Ark school, you will have fantastic opportunities to develop. We are part of a large network of schools committed to continuing the professional development of staff at levels of the Academy. Ark offers a range of subject specific, teaching and pastoral development courses and one off training sessions. In addition, there are three network days across the year where teachers of each subject come together for targeted training and moderation sessions.
At Bolingbroke, we believe that staff development is an on-going process that is best delivered little and often. Every Friday morning, there is a whole school professional development session. These sessions are differentiated to meet the needs of our staff and ensure that our teaching reflects the latest research and pedagogy. Sessions are delivered by a range of staff members, giving them the opportunity to share best practice and develop their skills as a facilitator. We also have an extensive coaching programme across the school which help to develop a team of reflective practitioners.
Becoming a member of Bolingbroke Academy will enable you to work other outstanding practitioners within our school and across our network, helping to shape the futures of the children in our schools.
