Children’s chances of success are maximised if they develop deep and lasting understanding of mathematical procedures and concepts at Primary school age. We offer a range of CPD programmes to support primary teachers in gaining an enhanced mathematical subject knowledge.

Mastery Readiness Work Groups

REGISTER NOW to secure a place for our 2021/22 programme

This programme is for schools who have a commitment to developing a whole school approach to teaching for mastery and would like to start their mastery journey.

Your school will be part of a Work Group of up to 7 schools working together at workshops.  The Work Group is led by one of our experienced Mastery Readiness Leads. During the year, you will work closely together to develop subject and pedagogical knowledge, as well as supporting teaching, learning and leadership of maths across your school by looking at the Five Big Ideas of Mastery Readiness.

Primary Headteacher Maths Conference

Moving forward from the pandemic: be stronger than before

We are inviting headteachers from all Primary schools within our 5 LA boroughs (Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale and Stockport) to attend a free online maths conference on 11th May 2021.

The aim of the conference is to support you in your planning as we move forward from the pandemic, and to demonstrate how your school can seize the opportunity to become even stronger than before.

We have a fantastic line up of speakers and an exciting agenda.  Please scroll below for further information and to book your place by clicking ‘Apply Now’.

Diagnostic Interviews & Interventions P3

PROGRAMME 3: PLEASE BOOK BELOW FOR 14th MAY & 18th JUNE     1.15-3.15pm

Never before has it been so critical to identify, assess and address children’s difficulties with mathematics.

Aimed at supporting the implementation and progression of a mastery curriculum, this diagnostic approach (developed in New Zealand) is based on interview techniques and a structure of conceptual development. It will support practitioners in their understanding of the strategies to support learners in mathematics.

This fully funded programme is aimed at KS2 primary teachers, maths subject leaders and SENCOs.

Primary Teaching for Mastery Sustaining Work Groups

Find out how the Sustaining phase could benefit your school – watch our video here: https://vimeo.com/471094297

Register below for 2021/22

The ‘sustaining’ phase of Teaching for Mastery is designed to offer FREE support to schools who have previously completed the Teaching for Mastery Programme working with a Mastery Specialist in 2016/17, 2017/18 or 2018/19, and are based in Manchester, Stockport, Oldham, Rochdale or Bury.

This is an ideal opportunity for schools who are looking to focus on the continued improvement, consistency and refinement of the mastery approach.  Workshops will be held online until face-to-face delivery can be safely resumed.

Y5-Y8 Continuity Work Group

Bookings for this programme have closed for 2020/21.  Please register below for 2021/22.

The key aim of this programme is to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8. If you are joining the programme after the first session, recordings and resources are available.

A key theme is multiplicative reasoning and content will include developing a deeper understanding of multiplicative structures, such as fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios.

A lesson study approach is encouraged where all participants focus on a particular aspect of the maths curriculum and work collaboratively to develop this in their schools. Cross-phase classroom observation and discussion of practice is encouraged wherever possible. Participants are expected to consider ways to develop the approaches explored during the project with other staff in their schools.
