Learner Expectations



A panel of leading practitioners argue that pupils and teachers perform best in an atmosphere of high expectations, with a drive for improvement coming from the top.

The six experts suggest that teachers need to give pupils detailed ideas of how to improve and that staff can raise their game by learning from the most effective teachers in the school.

The panel base their discussions around the Follow the Learner series, filmed at Hove Park School in Brighton. They give frank opinions on what they feel the programmes reveal about the critical issue of student aspirations, and how teachers can best raise them.

The experts are:

  • Corinne Franceschi, deputy head of Gable Hall School and former SSAT adviser
  • Phil Beadle, consultant and author
  • Heather Flint, former headteacher of Waldegrave School
  • Tom Barwood, education consultant
  • Brin Best, education consultant and author
  • Helen Todd, Edison achievement advisor
