Vertical tutoring (a.k.a. VT) is a complete overhaul of the schools pastoral systems.

Plenaries are used by teachers either during the lesson or at the end to review the aims of the lesson and consolidate the students’ learning. It is an evaluative part of a lesson where students reflect on what they have learnt and achieved during that teaching period. Furthermore it can be a time to celebrate good work and outcomes.

Do I need a plenary?

Planning engaging lessons are crucial to being an outstanding teacher and in practise this means that the students are engaged from the start of every lesson. When planning lessons teachers are encouraged to have a hook at the start of a lesson that grabs the attention of the students. It could be a question, an image or music and it needs to introduce the topic and then provoke further questions. Likewise the plenary of a lesson is just as important (doubly important during any observations) as students need to understand what progress they have made and demonstrate what they have learnt. One of the mistakes teachers can easily make is not giving time for a plenary. It should not be rushed or a quick add on. Plenaries like the main learning session needs to be planned, a plenary is important for the students as it rounds off the lesson and students should leave your classroom knowing they now know more than when they walked in.
