What is 'Quality First Teaching' in the classroom?

All children have a right to access quality teaching in a classroom, delivered by a qualified teacher.  At Canklow Woods, this means that:

  • The teacher has the highest possible expectations for all pupils in their class.
  • All teaching is built on what your child already knows, can do and can understand.
  • Differentiation of teaching methods, outcomes and tasks are in place, so that your child is fully involved in learning in class.
  • Specific strategies (which may be suggested by the SENCO) are in place to support your child to learn.
  • Adaptations are made to ensure that your child can access every learning opportunity, for example seating positions, adaptations to visual displays or allocated specific resources and prompts.
