A primary teacher tries to improve his maths teaching Springwell Junior School have rated primary teacher Steve Kubairsingh’s lessons as ‘good’. We bring in top School Inspector Clare Gillies to assess one of Steve’s Year 3 maths lessons. After his lesson on co-ordinates, the inspector’s feedback highlights a need for more real life context and a greater clarity of intention as his main areas for improvement. Then he’s off to the clinic where he receives bespoke advise from communications coach Roger Terry on his presentation skills, and Primary Maths expert Darren Ellsum works with him on pedagogy. Steve then has just three weeks back in the classroom to practice putting the advice into action before the inspector returns to observe a second lesson and deliver the final verdict. Will Steve have made the grade? Will he have raised his game to go from ‘Good ‘ to ‘Outstanding’?
