Specialist Leaders in Education

James Berry


I am in my 7th year of work at Chesterton Primary School where I have moved from NQT starting my career to now being Deputy Head responsible for Assessment and Lead for the London South West Maths hub.

I am very passionate about recent developments in teaching and learning in Maths with a focus on teaching for mastery. Having been involved in the DfE's Shanghai exchange in 2014/15 I feel I have a good understanding of the principles behind teaching for mastery.

As well as leading assessment and Maths at Chesterton, I also lead the London South West Maths Hub. As part of this programme I regularly lead training and deliver gallery lessons to a wide range of professionals.

I can offer support to school leaders in implementing effective assessment systems under the new curriculum expectations. I can also provide bespoke support in terms of Maths leadership development for new subject leaders and middle leaders.

I can also provide whole school training/INSET based on teaching for mastery.
