Our staff are our greatest asset when it comes to delivering the best possible outcomes for our pupils. We take Professional Development seriously at Rossall School and aim to provide an interesting, informative and diverse programme for all our staff. We know that people learn in different ways and therefore we provide a rich menu of opportunities for learning and developing personally and professionally. We maintain a teaching and learning library, an online forum for sharing ideas (our Rossall Teachers’ Forum), weekly digital training, the opportunity to take part in online courses, a Leadership Academy for our current and aspiring Senior and Middle leaders, regular training for those in middle management, time set aside for departmental training as well as workshop-style approach to whole staff training sessions. Colleagues are also strongly encouraged to engage in education debates, attend local and national conferences and INSET and to ensure that they implement and share the best of what they have learned. We are keen to support colleagues through additional qualifications such as Masters and PhDs, as we believe that such individuals have a huge amount to offer to our colleagues and our pupils.
