“As a result of useful, timely, constructive and supportive feedback I have received at Biddick Academy, the confidence I have in delivering high-quality maths lessons to promote mastery and to develop depth of understanding in a positive climate for learning has skyrocketed” – Leona, Teacher of Mathematics.
