At Ecole Dickinsfield School we are committed to creating a culture of continuous improvement in order to improve achievement. Through a strong collaborative framework, teacher capacity is developed through learning and working collectively with colleagues to create authentic lesson plans, engaging projects and meaningful assessments. Teachers work in subject teams to analyze and critically understand the essential learning outcomes of the curriculum. These key concepts are utilized when planning lessons or assessments which are used to gather evidence about how students are achieving in relation to the curriculum. Students learn from their assessments as a strategy in the learning process. Interventions are implemented for students at risk through a committed team approach of teachers, parents and students working cooperatively. Decisions are made with the best interests of students in mind and collectively involve the Dickinsfield community of parents, students and teachers.
