Teaching staff at Guru Nanak Sikh Academy are expected to adhere to the
DfE Teacher's Standards to create effective classroom practice

Outstanding Teaching and Learning is at the heart of Guru Nanak Sikh Academy, the six pillars are key to achieving our shared vision which is that 'every student matters'. We will ensure that these words are reflected in our actions as we strive to ensure that every student is exceeding their potential through exceptional teaching every lesson - every day of the week 

Quality first teaching and learning assurance at the Academy is monitored through triangulation of the following key areas;

Learning walks, which help us see outstanding practice in action and allow us to share this outstanding practice across the Academy to improve student outcomes

Book looks, when help us monitor student work for presentation and quality of feedback by Subject Leads, this is extremely important to ensure students are able to create a dialogue with their teachers to progress and exceed their potential 

Termly Diagnostic Reports, these allow us to monitor and evaluate data, student voice, areas of development for each subject department 

'Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be EVEN BETTER' - Dylan William 

Professional development at Guru Nanak Sikh Academy is structured to be a sustained, coherent programme rooted in evidence and explicitly linked to student outcomes

We recognise that teachers are 'agents of change' and collaboration by sharing outstanding practice is a key tool which will be utilised to ensure all staff are provided with support to develop their craft further
