Spalding Grammar School

Teaching, Learning and Assessment

Our Teaching, Learning and Assessment Vision:

“Students enthusiastically engage in outstanding teaching and learning opportunities, leading to excellent progression and outcomes for all learners.”

To achieve this vision, we have high expectations of our students:

Our Learner Profile sets out these expectations


  • High levels of attendance and punctuality
  • Smart and correct uniform
  • Be equipped and organised; pack bag night before (see list below)
  • Correct use of planner
  • Communicate effectively with staff, parents and fellow students



Effective Learner

  • Have high expectations
  • Take responsibility for learning
  • Engage in all lessons; make a positive contribution
  • Produce classwork and homework to the best of ability
  • Meet all deadlines
  • Act on feedback to aid progress
  • Demonstrate resilience when adversity is met


Having the correct equipment for every lesson is the responsibility of each student. Each student should have access to their own: 

  • Writing pen (blue/black ink)
  • Pencil, sharpener and rubber
  • 30cm ruler
  • Geometry set and pair of compasses
  • Scissors and glue stick


  • Lined paper
  • Colouring pens/pencils
  • Highlighters
  • Scientific calculator
  • Purple pen for RAFT (see section 7)

Education is most effective when students, the School and parents all work together towards a common goal. As such, we expect the following of parents:

Reinforce the School’s vision with their son/daughter and create a positive learning environment at home. Support their son/daughter with their study routines, whilst being mindful not to do the work for them to promote resilience and independence.  Communicate any feedback with the School.
