Teaching Pedagogy

We have our very own teaching pedagogy (Furrowfield Way) at Furrowfield School.

This is designed to support our students and to challenge them in their learning.

Our Furrowfield Way is based upon the research conducted by Costa and Kallick with a focus on Habits of Mind – what makes people successful.

We have chosen 5 habits of mind to support our students’ Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) development. These habits are:

  • collaboration
  • resilience
  • inquisitive
  • imaginative
  • reflective

We have embedded these into our Vision and Values, our curriculum planning and our reward system. All our curriculum planning inextricably linked with the National Curriculum focuses on how can increase their skills within the 5 habits.
