Caistor Yarborough Academy is pleased to have received The Prince’s Teaching Institute Mark for 2012/13.

The schools programme was launched by the Prince’s Teaching Institute (PTI) in 2007 to recognise and reward school departments that develop and enhance teaching in various subjects.

And at Caistor Yarborough it is the mathematics department that has received the Mark in recognition of the development of their Schemes of Work and resources within the department carried out in 2012/13.

“The maths department are over the moon to have been awarded the PTI Mark for our department’s innovative work,” said Becky Spencer, leader of Caistor Yarborough Academy’s mathematics department.

“And we are extremely proud to carry the Mark on our stationery and website as evidence of our commitment to inspirational teaching.’

The PTI’s Schools Programme is open to all state secondary schools in England.

To become members, school departments must demonstrate their commitment to increasing teachers’ subject knowledge and to furthering their students’ understanding of and enthusiasm for the subject, regardless of their background or ability.

To achieve the PTI Mark, departments then have to demonstrate they have increased the challenge within their subject curriculum; developed their staff’s knowledge; developed subject-based links outside school; and enthused their students through subject-based activities beyond the curriculum.
