A primary teacher is seeking to improve from a good to an outstanding teaching rating. Her Year 2 literacy lesson is assessed by top school inspector Clare Gillies in this pedagogy and professional development resource.
Following Vicky Edwards' lesson on story characters, Clare recommends that Vicky makes the learning intentions clearer, to enable pupils to focus on the areas for progression.
Vicky takes one-to-one CPD advice from communications coach Roger Terry, and guidance on scaffolding strategies from literacy consultant Tania Silverman.
Vicky then has just three weeks back in the classroom at Pooles Park Primary School, north London, to put their advice into practice before Clare returns to observe a second lesson and deliver her final verdict.
Will Vicky improve sufficiently to impress Clare?
