To arrange a meeting with a staff member (apart from the Headteacher) you will need to contact them at the school directly. Please be aware that teaching staff are often unable to respond to calls and emails during the school day. If they are unavailable at the time you call, please leave a voice message with your contact details and they will call you back. Please see our contact page for more specific information about directing your enquiry.
The central aim of coaching at EBS is to improve teaching & learning throughout the school by supporting staff and developing a confident, self reliant, creative staff body.
There are two main aspects to the role of coaching within the school. First, coaching will be used to provide the school with an alternative route for tackling whole school issues (e.g. embedding assessment for learning in teaching). Line managers will be able to guide teachers toward a coach who can help to develop that member of staff in a non-judgemental environment. In this way the role of coaching can be allied with the professional development programme already running within the school.
Second, coaching is a way of the school demonstrably giving something back to the staff. It is an investment in individuals. Coaching should act as an effective support mechanism for staff within the school. A key role of the Coaching Faculty would be to tap into the enormous skills base and potential of the staff at EBS. All staff at EBS are committed to the school and work extremely hard; coaching is a way of the school demonstrably giving something back to the staff.
As a Leadership Partnership School, we specialise in developing the skills of all our students and staff. The Headteacher is a National Leader of Education, and personally trains all members of staff seeking promotions to senior positions. She also runs a special programme for Sixth Form students to develop their leadership skills, and mentors other Headteachers, as well as NPQH candidates.
We believe that all teachers are leaders and that developing their leadership skills will also improve their capacity to deliver effective and inspiring lessons. We also know that these skills are essential for students to be successful in their future careers and life in general; hence why we place so much emphasis on this aspect of their education.
