A primary teacher takes the pedagogy and CPD challenge Sebright Primary School rates primary teacher Salma Ali as ‘good’. As part of our challenge we bring in top inspector Clare Gillies to assess one of Salma’s Year 1 lessons. The inspector’s feedback after Salma’s literacy lesson on responding to questions highlights Salma’s need to create more speaking and listening opportunities and keep her eye on the length of the starter activity on the carpet. She’s then off to our ‘clinic’ to get some one-to-one CPD from primary literacy consultant Jane Scholey to work on pedagogy. Plus, Salma gets some tips from our presentation and communications expert Mo Shapiro. She then has just three weeks back in the classroom to put their advice into action before the inspector returns to observe a second lesson and deliver her final verdict. Will Salma make the grade? Will she raise her game sufficiently to go from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’?
