A TEACHER is hoping to enhance learning opportunities for her pupils by using methods she learned on a research project.
Caroline Boreham, a religious education teacher at The Deepings School has spent time exploring how the school can support its pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural development with the help of The Farmington Institute.
The institute, an Oxford University-based charity, was founded to support, encourage and improve religious education in schools, colleges and universities. Caroline received a grant which enabled her to receive tutoring at the Oxford graduate college, listening to other RE teachers and head teachers presenting their research.
Mrs Boreham said: “I have been able to put together an easy step-by-step guide for schools to identify how to help students develop in these key areas, but more importantly how to measure their progress.
“My next steps include using the research to create teacher training opportunities at The Deepings School and other schools.”
Teaching methods used so far have included a trip to Auschwitz and a Year 8 pupils visited to St Guthlac’s Church in Market Deeping.
