Ann Farr – SLE Pen Portrait

SLE Specialism: Maths

I have worked as head of maths and Assistant head (in charge of English and maths) at secondary level. I worked as a school improvement officer supporting maths in over 20 secondary and primary schools and I am currently a Deputy Head teacher in a primary school.

My main focus is on improving the quality of teaching and learning, particularly developing the understanding of maths. I am a Mastery Champion linked to the South Yorkshire Maths hub and provide training and support to develop mastery in the classroom.

As a consultant and school improvement officer, I have supported schools in developing whole school assessment and tracking, implementing the new Curriculum, supporting leadership and management, improving the teaching of maths and thinking skills.
