She has delivered many different interventions covering literacy, numeracy and behaviour. Jane also teaches literacy and numeracy to full classes and small groups. She plans the lessons and assessments to ensure the children make sufficient progress and all objectives from the National Curriculum are covered. She is fully aware of the objectives from the National Curriculum and has been planning and teaching from them from when they were first instigated.
