Louise Jesson - Maths


I have worked at The Priory School since 2005. I was Head of Mathematics for five years before becoming a Lead Practitioner in 2013. I have been an SLE since 2016 and am currently working jointly with Alban TSA.

I have previously worked closely with the University of Hertfordshire, as a mentor for PGCE and GTP students, and quality assuring the work completed by mentors in other schools.

My current role is based around teaching and learning with a focus on behaviour. Part of this involves supporting teachers with their classroom behaviour management and delivering CPD to whole staff or smaller groups offering practical strategies for the classroom. I have also been sent to support a failing school and worked with colleagues from other schools who need support in moving to outstanding teaching.

Last year I was seconded to Stevenage ESC to support my understanding and develop my skills with students who have behavioural barriers to learning.
