Blog of the Week from Ian Grant, Assistant Head at Heathfield Community School in Taunton


Picking up books around school, talking to the Teaching and Learning group and various students, I have been pleased to see and hear the various ways departments are building in regular formative assessments (ways to check understanding). This is a key priority and forms the backbone to our assessment system.

The Blog of the Week is from the excellent Doug Lemov (Teach Like a Champion) and Alex Laney (Teacher at Smithswood Sports College, Birmingham).

Have a re-call-y good week!
