The Securing Good or Better programme has been developed by teaching, learning and behaviour specialists from the Hackney Learning Trust. It has been recognised as an example of innovative practice by both schools and the Department for Education.
The programme enables staff to develop and implement strategies to improve the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom.
It provides a structured approach to understanding the features of best practice in teaching and learning and supports staff to identify and implement change.
The programme also enables staff to consider how teaching and learning is underpinned by the five domains of emotional intelligence. It provides the tools for establishing reflective learning communities to enable staff to share best practice and support each other to embed and maintain improvement.
The programme guidance is supported by three DVDs. One DVD details how to implement each phase of the Securing Good or Better programme. The remaining two DVDs provide illustrative examples of quality first teaching across a range of year groups, with extracts from discussions with outstanding practitioners. The DVDs also include examples to illustrate how behaviours and structures within the five domains of SEAL underpin good or better practice.
“This project has been really successful in our school. It has raised the quality of teaching. I would highly recommend it to other schools.”
