Stretching and challenging learners to achieve their best
Having a highly skilled and talented staff team at Upper Batley High School provides learners with opportunities to really ﬂourish in their learning and self-development.
The quality-ﬁrst teaching delivered in lessons really stretches and challenges learners’ thinking. In school, we have done a lot of work around retrieval practices, recall and meta cognition and we use proven research methods such as the EEF (Education Endowment Foundation) to achieve positive outcomes with learners. We look at the science behind thinking and we use this as a tool in the classroom to unlock learners’ potential for effective study and reasoning. This brilliant work is reﬂected in our learners' fantastic outcomes and their wonderful achievements in school.
We have recently worked with our young people in Year 10 and 11 on how to best revise to deepen their knowledge and understanding. Helping and supporting them with revision methods that suit their individual learning needs and working with techniques that work best for them.
This will be followed by our Mastery of Revision evening for Year 11 learners and their parents/carers on Tuesday 7 November. The evening will give learners and their families the opportunity to pick up revision materials and get hints and tips on the subjects for which they will sit examinations, which will ultimately help them develop their knowledge further.
