Every primary school teacher needs to ensure that they meet the criteria set out in the Teachers’ Standards. However translating what this means in the classroom isn’t always easy, especially when you're starting out your career in teaching.   


This book directly looks at the standards providing guidance on how professionalism can be demonstrated and evidenced in primary schools underpinned by practical examples.  Steps to Success boxes in each chapter look at challenges in the classroom encouraging a reflective perspective on your teaching.  


Key coverage includes:


• Effective teaching and learning and what it means to be a learner

• Planning and assessment for successful teaching

• Meeting the needs of all children

• Behaviour management

•The role of subject and pedagogical knowledge.

Set high expectations which inspire, motivate and challenge pupils
Promote good progress and outcomes by pupils
Demonstrate good subject and curriculum knowledge
Plan and Teach Well Structured Lessons
Adapt teaching to respond to the strengths and needs of all pupils
Make accurate and productive use of assessment
Manage behaviour effectively to ensure good and safe learning
Professional Responsibilities

Keeping the 'L' Plates: Life-Long Learner

This is a useful, practical guide for student teachers and NQTs to support their ability to evidence The Teachers’ Standards. Supported by academic literature and theory, each chapter  unpicks the language used in each of the standards and  makes it more accessible; this would make it easier to  engage in professional dialogue and to set professional  targets. The layout of the text makes it easy to use, especially to dip in and out of. A valuable companion text.
