Jenny Chambers – SLE Pen Portrait

SLE Specialism: English, ITT, NQT Development

I have held the post of Assistant Head teacher at my current school since January 2015.  Here my responsibilities are to support teaching and learning as well as being the SENCO and maths lead.  Prior to this, I was the Assistant Head teacher at my last school. I held this post for 2 years, from January 2013. In this role my responsibility was to lead Teaching and Learning, including the Teaching and learning of students and Literacy. I was also the Mentor coordinator.

Since being an SLE I have collaborated with Barnsley Academy and other SLE’s to create a transition project to support learners in the transition from Y6 to Y7. This was a very successful project that ensured all learners were ready to begin their secondary education in September, were happy, and had a good understanding of school systems and staff. It also supported staff having a good understanding of pupil’s attainment and capabilities to ensure work is pitched appropriately.

In addition to this project, I have led a ‘Developing Creative Writing’ twilight session at my school.

My latest SLE project is to work alongside the SY Maths Hub in developing Mastery Mathematics across the area.
