Teaching approach of the school

The strategic areas and actions for the SEK schools, for 2021 and beyond, will focus on the agreed strategic areas in the Future Learning Model (FLM) , which was the result of a collaborative process involving people from across the SEK schools and the wider SEK community.
The overall aim of the Future Learning Model is to develop a unique and creative model of learning and teaching, that builds on our successful values, principles and practices, and is fit for purpose, not just in response to the pandemic, but for our long-term future.
The Future Learning Model is an approach and general framework for learning and teaching, that brings together eight key elements, which support a central focus on student and staff learning. These eight elements describe the learning and teaching that we value, and that we aim to develop across our schools. They form the basis for our strategic areas for development in 2021 and beyond.
Our aims are:
• to make learning more personalised and self-directed
• to nurture student agency
• to ensure diversity in learning approaches, environments and spaces
• to leverage technology to support learning
• to nurture global citizenship and social innovation
• to support staff self-directed professional inquiries and micro-innovations that impact on student learning
