Teaching at Top Valley Academy
Learning and teaching are interactive.
It is important that we teach children how to "learn to
learn" in order to become independent learners and develop
skills for life-long learning.
It must be made explicit to students what they need to do
to be successful in their learning and therefore focus on
developing independence and resilience to the challenges that they
will face in the classroom and more importantly in later life.
Top Valley Academy has a strong team of teachers and support
staff who are supported by the sponsor and share learning and
experiences with partner schools.
Collectively, we work with children and their families to make
sure that each individual receives the support and encouragement
that they need, to be their best.
We encourage a culture of continuous learning.
If you are a parent/carer and would like to understand more
about what your child is learning, we encourage you to talk to the
teachers and attend parents' evenings. Equally, we would like
to learn from you. If you have ideas as to how learning could
be more effective for your child, please let us know.
If you are a member of staff and you have ideas which would
support the Academy and sponsor in achieving the vision to become
the school of choice in the area, then please share these ideas
with the Headteacher.
