Learning Walks

As  a school we want our children’s experiences and voices to “jump out of the walls” through the teaching and learning environment at Unsworth. For us, the environment is not only the use of display, but the use of space and approaches to facilitating children’s learning, through an approach that values pupil and teacher learning conversations and celebrates the successes of all.

We feel strongly about sharing our learning as a school and welcome opportunities for other practitioners to visit our school to engage in discussions with us about what they see. These discussions help to continue to develop our school approach and celebrate what is working well.

Below you will find details about  how you can contact us to join one of our learning walks and read quotes from the feedback that participants have given based on their experiences within our school. 

If you are interested in joining us for one of our learning walks, contact school stating the date you are interested in.

Testimonials from Participants of our Learning Walks

“Thank you so much for letting us see and experience your amazing school. I am really intrigued by your writing walls-this is something I am going to take back. I also loved the pic collages on the door to show what you are doing that term.”

“Thank you so much for letting us visit. The pupils in Y2 are hard working and polite. We could see lots of fantastic work going on.”

Thank you for allowing us to have a look around your school. The whole environment is warm and inviting. The pupil voice is clearly evident throughout the school, in the variety of displays and within the culture of each classroom.”

“The school is so welcoming and positive. In each class the children are so happy and well mannered. The children appear on task and engaged in every classroom; they obviously love being there. Thank you to the delightful boys in Reception who made me lots of cakes!”

“How lovely to sneak a peak at your fraction lesson. Everyone was so busy and the children I spoke to could tell me exactly what they were doing. Ace number skills!”
