We want to make Fallibroome Academy an exciting place in which to learn for our students and our staff. To achieve this, we are committed to seeking out the best ideas from around the world to help us to improve and refine our practice and create an effective learning culture. Our aim is realise a sense of self-worth and personal growth in every member of the learning community which underpins our values of Trust, Respect, Optimism, Service and Creativity.
The school has a very strong commitment to engaging in action research and is a member of the Campaign for Learning and the SSAT’s System Redesign group. Professor David Hargreaves describes how we should be aspiring to creating the conditions for deep learning which has three components:
- Learning to Learn (for us this is Cooperative Learning)
- Assessment for Learning
- Student Voice
He lists the following as the characteristics of the deep learner and our work has focused on developing these skills in our students and our staff.
