Cardiff West Community High School

Teaching and Learning

Teaching & learning are the core purposes of our school. The essence of our approach towards teaching and learning is that the role of the teacher is to facilitate the learning of the students, so our students become ambitious and resilient learners. As reflective practitioners, we expect our teachers to engage individually and collectively in constant review and enhancement of pedagogy which continually advances the quality of teaching and learning at Cardiff West Community High School.  "The classroom is part of an exciting, complex rainforest made up of individuals with their own needs, individuality, prior knowledge, experience and ambitions, capable of expressing their learning in multiple forms." (Tom Sherrington, The Learning Rainforest)  At CWCHS we aim to ensure all learners are supported in their learning so they are able to become:

    • Ambitious, capable learners ready to learn throughout their lives 
    • Enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work. 
    • Ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the World 
    • Healthy, confident individuals ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
