Teaching resources and prioritization of time. I've talked about time and breadth, what you're offering. So in terms of time, we have a high priority on language, the frequency of language, particularly in English, because at our school, thats the language of instruction. If you're learning another language, first language or divisional language, then you might want small regular sessions with a native-speaking teacher. And then you want the equivalent in math and then the equivalent in the topic areas of STEAM. So science and technology, history, geography, math, art and those things, we divide them up as a percentage for each part of the week and know exactly how much of a percentage the children in each year group are getting of each thing. Now that changes, of course, according to age. We have a higher focus on language at a younger age and then we become a broader more subject-based curriculum later on. 

 

STEAM

 

It's a bit early in terms of allocation of teaching resources. Of course, they need the right spaces and the correct IT equipment or art equipment, those type of things, but what I really need is skilled experienced teachers to deliver that. That's absolutely critical. Without that, it doesn't really matter what else you do. In this room, it's a very large room, they can do cooking, they can do their technology, they can come in for their reading, all in a homely tight space, which, you know, gives them a sense of ownership and belonging. And that's really important for the youngest children, for the two-year-olds, three-year-olds or four-year-olds. So it's a specially designed space and facility that continues for whatever age or whatever education. You know, you must have the appropriate spaces and equipment for those skilled teachers to be able to deliver the very best thinking in terms of education.
