The four domains of excellent learning
At Ashton Park School we are on a journey to excellence. We have identified four domains of excellent learning that will enable us to progress on this journey:
- Understanding the content
- A supportive environment
- Maximising the opportunity to learn
- Thinking hard
These four domains have been heavily inspired by Professor Rob Coe's work in the Great Teaching Toolkit which is based on years of research into what makes the most effective teaching and learning.
Our staff have been trained on the four domains and our lessons are planned around them to make learning effective for the students of our community.
We have defined each domain in two ways. The actions we expect from our students and the actions we expect from our staff. If you click on the image below it will open a larger pdf where you can see this detail.
