At Durrington we have worked hard to develop a culture in our school where teachers and leaders are looked after, supported and professionally enriched. We would love to hear from you if you think that you might want to play a part in the exciting Durrington journey! In an ever-changing educational landscape, we focus on clear priorities:
- Ensuring all staff are able to have a sensible work/life balance – this means that we constantly review what we do, so teachers and leaders are able to focus on their core purpose.
- An evidence informed approach to teaching and CPD – we don’t want our teachers wasting their time on low-impact, gimmicky approaches to teaching. We want them to shape their teaching around what research evidence says is most likely to work. As one of only 32 Research Schools in the country, we are at the forefront of ensuring everything we do is informed by research evidence.
- Developing and growing our own excellent leaders, who in turn are able to nurture their own high-performing teams.
- Appointing external candidates with shared values, who will thrive in our school.
