John Bayley works with Barbara Lee, deputy headteacher at Grange Middle School in Harrow, to help her provide honest lesson feedback to staff.
Barbara's school is currently focused on the concept of differentiation. In this programme, we see Barbara working with Canadian born teacher Kristin Patterson as she incorporates mixed-ability group work into a Year 5 science lesson.
A number of Kristin's students are evidently on top of the task in hand, while others seem uncertain of their roles and confused about what they are expected to do.
Barbara's challenge is to provide Kristin with constructive feedback, expressing her misgivings about the group work in a way that Kristin can accept.
