  • What are the implications for my planning?
  • Examples, case studies & avoidances

Jade Pearce – As an assistant Headteacher at Walton High School, Jade leads on Teaching and Learning and CPDL. Her specialism is cognitive science and metacognition. This includes using understanding about memory and how we learn to develop effective teaching strategies. Jade has worked with teachers and leaders in many schools to embed this approach into their teaching and has generously shared her strategies, resources and model examples of how research translated into practical pedagogy. As a result, school leaders, teachers and more importantly students across the country have benefited from Jade’s work.
