Our Vision

We want students to be able to ADAPT to the demands of a rapidly changing world. TEEP is a tried and tested model for teaching and learning and will enable us to do this.

What is the Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme (TEEP)?

  • A framework for effective teaching and learning developed from research evidence
  • An effective CPD programme
  • A process not a product
  • Delivered by outstanding teacher practitioners who have themselves been through all levels of TEEP training
  • Generic- all subjects, all phases 

    TEEP provides a holistic framework that goes far beyond a lesson planning tool. It influences every aspect of the school, including culture, ethos, behaviours, vision and values” Dr J Gunraj, Independent evaluation, 2010

Quality Mark of innovation awarded to Upton-by-Chester High School

We are honoured to have been awarded TEEP Ambassador status by the SSAT (Specialist Schools and Academies Trust) in recognition of our success and commitment to continuous improvement through the Teacher Enhancement Effectiveness Programme (TEEP). This is an acknowledgement of the innovative work we have been conducting with staff and students and our aspirations for the future.

TEEP Ambassador School status enables schools to evidence their impact and provides a quality mark of innovation and improvement through the TEEP framework.

Upon hearing the news, Mr Keegan, Second Deputy Headteacher and national TEEP leader said: "I am extremely proud of this achievement and recognition which shows how innovative and how forward looking our staff is in delivering a 21st century curriculum."

Benefits of being a TEEP ambassador School

  • Leading in the ever growing network of TEEP Schools (over 250 schools and 7500 teachers have been trained from Sept 2010 – July 2014)
  • Provide further development and CPD opportunities for own staff to continue to share ideas and learn from other TEEP practitioners
  • To have the opportunity to work with other similar schools, at a leadership level, to evaluate the impact and embed TEEP in your school and beyond.
  • Recognition for the hard work and dedication of staff and students to improve teaching and learning, including potentially to local and national media 
  • Opportunities to raise the profile of the school at a regional and national level through SSAT events, publications and website.
