Learning and Teaching

"I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn". (Albert Einstein)
Learning and teaching remain at the core of school improvement and are at the heart of effective, well-led schools and CASS provides specific support in a number of key areas.

Policies and Procedures are the driving force behind how a school is run and a school has a wide range of policies which govern its safe and compliant operation. These include a policy for Learning and Teaching and CASS provides support for schools in writing this policy. The Learning and Teaching Policy should be reviewed and revised as necessary, and a new policy and procedures should be written as needed.
