The impact of excellent teaching on a child’s future success
24th Jan 2019
Can you recall the name of a teacher that made a big impression on you when you were in school? Most could. At a time when education, Curriculum and learning expectations are all evolving, we shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that ‘great teachers’ are the building blocks of a child’s future success.
Great relationships between teachers and pupils are encouraged at AISPP
Great teachers don’t just inspire their students to work hard and aim high - they do much more than that. They create an atmosphere, environment, along with standards and routines that make children feel relaxed, happy and positive about life and learning.
Inspired students will listen, learn, laugh and focus on the task in hand
A student that recognises the hard work, determination and confidence that their teacher has is more likely to listen, learn and be inspired to do well – and that has to be a good foundation for learning, academic achievement and mental wellbeing.
If teachers aren’t inspiring children to learn, then they can easily become distracted, disengaged and disheartened with the whole routine of school.
Teachers enthuse children to succeed by expecting high quality relationships
Excellent teachers find ways of firing the imagination! How? It’s partly down to offering students high quality learning experiences and opportunities, but also about forging great relationships. They do this by encouraging open, honest and respectful dialogue in their classroom – and that starts by treating each learner as a unique individual that matters and is valued.
What are the essential qualities of a great teacher?
Great teachers encourage but don’t demand, they smile even when they are disappointed, they dedicate themselves to the task of teaching, even if it means going beyond what is required of them, find ways of interacting with students (and their parents) to build mutual trust and cooperation and have an infectious enthusiasm!

Each member of our team is passionate about teaching and dedicated to ensuring their students recognise what they are truly capable of, and then set them on the pathway toward future success.
