Primary Teaching for Mastery Sustaining Work Groups

Professional Development - Primary, Professional Development, and TFM Primary

FREE taster webinar Tuesday 29th September 3.45-4.45pm – COVID recovery strategies in a Teaching for Mastery school context

A NEW fully funded Teaching for Mastery phase for 2020/2021.

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, Stcokport, 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.

The sustaining Work Group will consist of 6 sessions spread across the year led by Mastery Specialist teachers, designed around the needs of the participating schools. Key focus areas will be collaborative planning, leadership and specialist subject knowledge development.

Each school will have a lead participant in the Work Group, normally the subject leader for maths. Alongside the Maths Lead, another teacher will be able to participate in the Work Groups. The individual may differ from one session to another. This will depend on the session context and the individual will be chosen by each participating school.

Participants and their schools will:

  • Enhance their mathematical subject knowledge, emphasising key areas of maths
  • Learn how to establish an effective collaborative planning culture
  • Plan, teach and reflect collaboratively to provide a coherent mastery curriculum
  • Continue to refine school structures and systems to embed and sustain mastery
  • Continue to ensure a sustainable model for collaborative planning and ongoing specialist subject knowledge development for all teachers
