ELAN Pedagogical Principles

Pedagogy: the method and practice of teaching 


We have a principled approach to pedagogy that stems from our values - we do the right thing, we work together and we embrace individuality. Everything we do is informed by and evaluated against them. 


 ELAN teachers: 


  • are able to picture beautiful and intricate learning   - PICTURE IT 
  • have good general and secure knowledge of the whole school curriculum  - KNOW IT 
  • are highly skilled at selecting from and using a wide repertoire of pedagogical approaches - DELIVER IT 
  • use adaptive teaching – CHECK, THINK, TWEAK IT  
  • have PASSION for all of it!
