Challenge for All
Challenge is a key value at Bradon Forest. In lessons students of all abilities will be required to work towards and master higher order thinking and learning skills related to each individual subject. Most Able students are given specific instructions through independent activities and teacher led direction on how to consistently reach ‘excellent’ levels of progress. ‘Teaching from the top’ allows challenge to be presented at every level as students are supported to access higher order concepts and materials. Challenge within lessons also requires specific guidance from teachers in order for students to become competent in accessing higher order thinking skills within tasks and in examination questions. In line with this all teachers are required to focus on developing student progression on higher order thinking skills across a 5 year curriculum plan, ultimately allowing students to develop a ‘mastery of learning’ upon leaving Bradon Forest after Year 11.
