Barnet Deputy and Assistant Headteachers


Heather Fearn - Ofsted
Heather Fearn is the Curriculum and Development Lead at Ofsted. In this role, she contributed to the development of Ofsted's new inspection framework for 2019. She also developed inspector training materials, primarily to prepare Ofsted's workforce for inspecting using the new framework.
Heather’s expertise lies particularly in curriculum and assessment and she won an award from Cambridge University for her own Masters research on curricular progression in history.

Jonathan Lear
Apart from being a first-rate teacher, Jonathan has made a name for himself as an entertaining and challenging speaker who never fails to entertain and enthral an audience. Drawing on his experience both in the classroom and as a deputy head, he is not only able to share with his audiences many practical ideas to improve the quality and nature of teaching and learning in the classroom, but also an understanding from a leadership position of how to make change happen - and what might get in the way.

Jonathan brings the curriculum to life for children of all backgrounds and academic abilities through a combination of exciting and authentic real-life experiences, coupled with teaching children the skills of peer critique, mastery, thinking for themselves and taking a huge amount of care and pride in their work.

It is a no-nonsense approach to bringing the best out of children that hits all the right buttons when it comes to Ofsted and SATs, even though hitting the Ofsted and SATs buttons is the last thing they are trying to do!
