The school facilitates coaching that is likely to make a difference to the teaching and learning practices. Coaching is most productive when it is offered as a series rather than a one-off episode. Participants find that repeat sequence can be used on identified areas for development and discussion. Most coaching cycles are focused around a specific subject topic and lesson plan. This guidance centers on improving the level of performance through rigorous professionalism and practice. An essential element of successful coaching is the initial establishment of the coaching partnership. In ideal situations, coaching can be seen as a democratic and inclusive component of the school community.
The school counselling programme is designed to help students, parents, and teachers develop positive learning experiences.
