Teaching and Learning
Download the Berwickshire High School Learning and Teaching Policy [PDF document].
At the heart of good learning is quality teaching and the intention of our Learning and Teaching Policy is to encourage enjoyable and effective classroom practice which embraces different learning styles and promotes active learning so that young people can realise their potential in educational and human terms. This policy is based on the relationship between practice and theory, where each inform the other, where the science and art of teaching meet.
Many of the recent developments in learning have been brought about by discoveries in neuroscience, psychology and sociological studies and such developments help us adapt teaching methodologies in order to create better learning for young people and it is our intention to keep abreast with emerging research about learning.
