The Prince's teaching institute mark
Rainham Mark Grammar School is pleased to receive The Prince’s Teaching Institute Mark in Art, Music, History and Languages.
The Prince’s Teaching Institute (PTI) launched the Schools Programme in 2007 to recognise and reward school departments that develop inspirational ideas and activities which enhance the teaching of English, History, Geography, Science, Modern Foreign Languages and Mathematics, regardless of their pupils’ backgrounds or abilities. It is run as a membership group for school departments that choose to commit to increasing the challenge of their subject provision.
The Prince’s Teaching Institute (PTI) Schools Leadership Mark
Rainham Mark Grammar School and its Headteacher, Mr Simon Decker have been awarded The Prince’s Teaching Institute (PTI) Schools Leadership Mark.
The aim of the PTI Schools Leadership Programme is to encourage schools to consider whole-school approaches to leadership, staffing and the curriculum that help to develop the quality, rigour and challenge experienced by pupils of all abilities and backgrounds. Each school undertakes an action-based research project that will be of benefit to all participating schools.
This programme has grown out of the PTI’s annual Headteachers’ residential conferences, started in 2008, which offer participants the chance to reflect on the purposes of education and all aspects of school leadership. At the 2011 conference, the Headteachers unanimously requested that the PTI create a forum to provide networks and inspiration to support whole-school subject-centred leadership.
