Jane Hopwood is a trained maths teacher who has taught in primary and secondary schools in Scunthorpe and Selby for almost twenty years. When the Year 6 Level 6 papers were introduced, she began working in primary schools with children who were accessing the higher Level 5 materials. Dashing between primary schools and working with the most talented mathematicians in Selby was fun for a while, but she eventually decided to settle down at Selby Community Primary School. Since her first day as a full-time class teacher in September 2015, Jane has been using the Maths — No Problem! Programme. She is now the maths lead for the school.
