In Service Training

Through Jeanefer’s extensive work in schools, she has recognised the increasing and growing threat to dance being taught in schools. As a response to this, Jeanefer has developed an in-service training programme, working alongside teachers to deliver a dance project based on a scheme of work linked to the National Curriculum. Through co-teaching and mentoring, this programme provides teachers with the skills, confidence and resources to deliver dance, building capacity internally.

Over the course of the programme, a scheme of work created, which includes weekly lesson plan with interactive video examples and links to music. This is given to the school at the end of the programme, providing them with a resource for future years.
Previous topics include, Stone Age,  Dangerous Earth and Space.

” The project that you have run at Barnes, over the last year, has been a resounding success for staff, children and the parents.  Confidence levels amongst staff and children have increased significantly and the feedback from parents has been very positive.  Productions and the inclusion of dance within the performances has had a profound impact upon the quality of the productions across Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Staff have certainly been inspired by the work that you have carried out “
