Lesson Study 

At St Hugh of Lincoln Catholic Primary we are always working hard to teach our pupils in most exciting and engaging ways. That is why we use a research based tool called Lesson Study. It’s just another example of how we go the extra mile to provide the very best education for our children.

What is lesson study?

Lesson Study is a professional development programme that involves teachers working in small groups to plan lessons that address a shared learning goal for pupils. They then deliver these lessons while their peers observe, and refine the lesson plans based on feedback and review. The focus of peer observations is on the learning of particular pupils rather than the teacher.  

Why do we do it?

· See pupil learning occurring in much sharper detail than is usually possible.

. · See the gaps between what we assumed was happening when pupils learned and what it is actually happening.

 · Find out how to plan learning which is better matched to the pupils’ needs as a result.

· Do all this in the context of a supportive teaching and learning community which is strongly committed to helping pupils to learn and to the professional learning of the members of the group.
