Welcome to Wyedean School’s new home for our teaching and learning blogs! This will be where we share our CPD reflections, our professional learning, and where we celebrate the hard work and passion of our staff, who work together collaboratively to, in the words of Dylan Wiliam, “improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better”.
We believe there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution to CPD: professional learning communities necessitate flexibility, choice, accountability and support to procure optimal outcomes. Furthermore, higher levels of wellbeing are reported when people work in small teams, and autonomy promotes teacher wellbeing.
