Bury Grammar Schools

Role of The Class Teacher


At BGS we pride ourselves on excellent relationships with our pupils and families. Our class teachers promote interactive, well-resourced environments in which pupils can learn creatively and develop as individuals.

We believe creating a nurturing and positive learning environment is key to success. Ensuring high quality, age appropriate teaching material initiates high standards to which our pupils respond enthusiastically. Thorough assessment and recording by our class teachers provides a clear understanding of attainment and supportive guidance maintaining good progress for pupils.

Class teachers encourage inclusivity and enrichment promoting an all-round education for all whilst supporting the individual needs of the class, resulting in happy pupils alongside high expectations.

''Teaching in the Junior School enables me to nurture, challenge and support each pupil individually.  I can give them the best start in their educational journey.  To watch the superb progression academically and pastorally in each child is a daily privilege.''

Mrs R Hankinson, Class Teacher
