It is essential that all children develop firm mathematical foundations in a way that is engaging, and appropriate for their age. Our nationally accredited professional development programmes support all professionals working in Early Years.

Building Firm Mathematical Foundations in Reception

This Work Group is aimed at schools who are currently developing a teaching for mastery approach in KS1 and KS2. Early Years practitioners and senior leaders will develop their understanding of how Early Years best practice feeds into a teaching for mastery approach, and build firm foundations for all children so that they are ready to progress into Year 1. Participants will consider how to build clear progression in mathematical concepts and how to make these accessible to young children.


Early Years Subject Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics


This popular programme is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom. Areas to be covered include: number patterns and structures, pattern, shape, space and measures.

Starting in September 2020, this programme consists of 4 x 1 day sessions.
