Danielle Bartram is a maths teacher, and has an active role in developing teaching and learning at Northfield School and Sports College, where she regularly delivers and supports CPD events. She has a particular interest in numeracy across the curriculum, and has facilitated several events within her school to support and develop numeracy. These have included guest speakers and numeracy-themed weeks across the whole school and curriculum.
Despite having only been teaching for two years, Danielle has developed several resources which are used by thousands of teachers across the UK and internationally.
At the start of each year, the vast majority of teachers write a seating plan for each new class. The seating plan will often have minor tweaks throughout each term, however the majority of students will have the same seat for the whole year. My argument is though, should a seating plan not be a flexible document related to ability and current progress of the students?
