School Direct Teacher Training
As a school we have a commitment to support School Direct students, this is a programme that supports teachers to train within a school environment. We work in partnership with Canterbury Christchurch University to do this and it enables training teachers to spend a greater amount of time in school learning from experienced colleagues.
In July 2017 we were graded as a LEADING PARTNERSHIP SETTING.
We have a successful record in training new teachers to the profession and during the year 2015/2016 we have mentored two School Direct students through this process, Miss Tustin and Mrs Terry. Both of them have achieved highly and have now completed their training. Miss Tustin has now successfully completed her NQT year at Kings Hill School in Year 3. Miss Tustin is now in her second year of teaching and is also our Art Leader.
During 2016/2017 Miss Hannah Jordan was our School Direct student teaching in Year 5 Macaws. We are pleased to announce that Miss Jordan has achieved an 'outstanding' final assessment in association with the University. Miss Jordan has now commenced her teaching career at Kings Hill teaching in Year 5.
We welcome Miss Helen Paul who is our School Direct student in 2017/2018 teaching in Year One.
