Primary Coaching and Mentoring: Focused Feedback



Former policewoman Jane Fanshawe has been teaching at Holy Cross RC Primary School near Newcastle for less than four years but has progressed rapidly to become MFL co-ordinator.

We look at some of the professional development that Jane receives to support her in her role. The school's previous MFL co-ordinator, Maria Nicholson, mentors Jane through what's expected of the role, discussing a range of factors involved in a successful coaching process.

The programme follows Jane into a coaching session, planning with Andrew James what the focus of the lesson observation will be. Maria is on hand to mentor Jane through her approach during the observation.

Following her observation, Jane gives Andrew feedback, closely watched by Maria, who in return feeds back to Jane on her coaching technique.
