The Four Pillars of Learning

Challenge, Engagement, Feedback and Independent Learning

Teaching and Learning at Roselands & Stafford is based around our Four Pillars of Learning: Challenge, Engagement, Feedback and Independent Learning. The concept of our pillars is consistent from Reception through to Year 6, with its success criteria becoming more challenging as pupils mature.

Our pupils and teachers created the pillars in 2016, based on John Hattie’s research on Effect Sizes (a leading researcher of education, who conducted extensive research into the influences of effective teaching and learning). The pillars underpin our approach to learning, planning of lessons, monitoring systems, reward systems and competitions assemblies.
