Vicky Edwards

See a primary teacher take on the pedagogical challenge Pooles Park Primary school rate primary teacher Vicky Edwards’ lessons as ‘good’. As part of our series we bring in top School Inspector Clare Gillies to assess one of Vicky’s Year 2 lessons on characters in stories. The inspector’s feedback after the lesson highlights a need for clearer Learning Intentions to guarantee that all pupils make significant progress as Vicky’s main area for improvement. So she’s off to our clinic to get one-to-one CPD advice from our communications coach Roger Terry and literacy consultant Tania Silverman who offers some scaffolding strategies. Vicky then has just three weeks back in the classroom to turn their advice into action before the inspector returns to observe a second lesson and deliver her final verdict. Will Vicky have made the grade? Will she have raised her game to go from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’?
