Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Work Groups

REGISTER YOUR INTEREST FOR OUR 2021/22 PROGRAMME

The Teaching for Mastery Programme is a professional development opportunity designed to support teachers to develop best practice in maths within their school.

The Development phase is intended for schools that are already committed to using teaching for mastery approaches for primary maths.

Each Work Group will be led by one of our Mastery Specialists and will involve six or seven primary schools. During the year, they will work closely together to introduce and develop approaches to teaching for mastery.

BOOKING NOW OPEN FOR 2021/22 PROGRAMME – Click on ‘Apply Now’ button below

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.

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.

Diagnostic Interviews & Interventions

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.
