Teaching and Learning



At Willington Primary School, we ensure that our teaching and learning approaches are underpinned by the latest educational research. We engage with other high quality teaching and learning networks, to ensure that our teachers are up to date with pedagogy to impact positively on pupil outcomes. This includes working with:


Flying High- English Hub

East Midlands Maths Hub

Early Excellence 



We have implemented a bespoke lesson structure and learning environment, understanding that cognitive load must be considered throughout lesson delivery. We use retrieval strategies in every lesson to activate prior knowledge to ensure that new content is connected to existing knowledge. 


We ensure that our School values, British Values and protected characteristics are woven through the curriculum, and pride ourselves on the high quality inclusive practice across each year group, for all of our pupils.
