Falinge Park High School
What is Compelling learning at Falinge Park High School?
Our objective at Falinge Park is to Create a Compelling Learning Experience. Learning is at the forefront of everything we do and encompasses the learning of the children, both inside and outside the classroom, and our commitment as staff to improving our own practice. It encompasses academic learning and personal growth; it underpins our Curriculum objectives; it drives us in our continuous development.
The staff at Falinge Park High School worked together to identify what we see as Compelling Learning. This is their statement:
What is compelling learning for staff and pupils at FPHS?
Compelling Learning is: engrossing, irresistible and creative. It is like a book you can’t put down. It is gripping, riveting, enthralling, absorbing and thrilling. It is characterised by curiosity, relevance and rigour.
Those involved work collaboratively in a positive environment. We are given the opportunity to express opinions in a respectful curious and reflective manner. We are encouraged to take calculated risks to improve learning in an environment where we are trusted and valued.
We are persistent in our learning – even when it is difficult. We know we will be given the techniques to improve.
Our learning is supported and scaffolded but not so much that it holds us back. We are recognised as individuals. Our learning takes account of where we are, where we want to be and what we need to do to get there. We celebrate diversity and promote equality of opportunity in our approach to learning. Our growth mindset and the language we use unlocks our individual and collective potential.
