All advertisements for all posts clearly stipulate the stance adopted by the Academy by the inclusion of the following statement: ‘The Academy is committed to safeguarding children and young people.’
At Hammersmith Academy we ensure our CPD is bespoke to our staff based on levels of experience, expertise and years of teaching. Instead of a one size fits all approach, we work hard to make sure everyone feels like they are being stretched and improving.
Training for NQTs
Our NQTs are accredited though the Thomas Telford School training centre. NQTs receive an excellent support programme to ensure
success in their first year which includes weekly NQT meetings, 1:1 support with the Head of Teaching and Learning and weekly sharing of best practice from experienced staff.
You can book face-to-face sessions or you can use our library or video clips, articles and online resources. This way, you can pick and mix the training you need, from presentation skills to early language intervention for reception children.
Our schools develop their own training sessions based on what their people need – a particular school might run a session about how their teachers write lesson plans, or how they implement the school’s curriculum.
