Students at Neale-Wade Academy in March are benefiting from ground-breaking teaching techniques showcased by teachers at a hugely successful event last week.

Teachers from all over the East of England gathered at the Academy last Tuesday to share ideas and find out how the academy is leading the way in innovative and exciting classroom practice.

Titled ‘Personal Innovation Making Mind blowing Success’, the TeachMeet attracted staff from both secondary and primary schools from all over the Fens, Cambridge, Peterborough and Leicester who were keen to find out how Neale-Wade is inspiring its students to learn.

Organiser of the event, Academy leading practitioner Lindsay Waggitt, said: “Neale-Wade is leading the way in innovation and best practice. We are delivering outstanding learning and sharing that practice with schools all over the South East”.

Thirty speakers were selected and each given three minutes to put forward ideas they had used successfully in the classroom including using Google Classroom, EdPuzzle, Twitter and the power of residential trips.

Miss Waggitt said a major factor in the Academy’s success is an advanced and specially tailored Continuous Professional Development programme for staff which is giving them both the confidence and skills to use cutting edge ideas.

She said: “It was an amazing end to the school year and one in which Neale-Wade has put itself firmly on the map as a leader in learning.”
