David Pollicutt



A secondary English teacher's lessons have been rated as good. His challenge is to gain an outstanding rating in just three weeks, with the help of experts, in this pedagogy and professional development resource.

Top school inspector Clare Gillies assesses one of David Pollicutt's Year 8 lessons on characterisation within Great Expectations, and she highlights some clear areas for improvement.

David then gets one-to-one CPD and pedagogical advice from English adviser Sabrina Broadbent, and he gets tips from voice and communications expert Ulrika Schulte-Baukloh.

He then has just three weeks back in the classroom at Sydney Russell School to put their advice into action before Clare returns to observe another of his lessons and deliver her final verdict.

Will David succeed in raising his game and move from good to outstanding?
