HFCS hosts Dutch teachers

For the last year, teachers at Holy Family have been working with the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust to develop formative assessment in the classroom.  300 schools applied to be a part of this project and we were one of 70 who were lucky enough to secure a place.  The project is led by assessment guru Dylan William, who has over 30 years experience of assessment development.  Along with his colleagues  he has developed a range of strategies to aid teachers assess pupil progress more accurately and rigorously.  Due to the fantastic work that teachers at Holy Family are doing, the SSAT asked if we would host teachers from Holland, who are interested in potentially developing the programme in schools back home.   On Wednesday the 2nd of November, we were fortunate enough to host 14 Dutch teachers who were very eager to get into classrooms to see what takes place.  They saw a range of lessons and overall were very complimentary at the teaching and learning taking place in classrooms.  They were overwhelmed at the skills teachers demonstrated in being able to motivate and engage students.  They commented on the high energy and passion of both our students and staff, and on what a lovely community feel there is to the school.  It was great to showcase the wonderful work that takes place in our school and hopefully we may be invited to Holland to see what school life is like there and how it compares to the British system!
