Primary Teaching for Mastery Sustaining Work Groups

Lead: TBC

This is for all primary schools who have previously been involved in teaching for mastery via a Development or Embedding Work Group, or who are Mastery Specialist schools. It brings together schools across the Maths Hubs Network that are working on continued development to sustain their teaching for mastery approach to mathematics. It is new in 2020/21 and builds on the work carried out in previous teaching for mastery Work Groups This year it will particularly focus on curriculum recovery. It will support schools in helping pupils make up for lost time through focusing on what really matters and providing a network of mutual support and expert guidance.

Supporting Primary NQTs

Lead: Robert Brearley

Overview

This Work Group addresses the current need to support primary NQTs who will have missed out on vital in-class experience due to Covid-19. Participants will develop their confidence in planning and delivering maths lessons to pupils and be supported in their own identified areas of need. By joining this Work Group, NQTs will become part of a community which will provide support for the teachers and their schools during the induction year and ensure any gaps existing in their development do not become permanent. Participants will develop their understanding of the ready-to-progress criteria in the DfE primary maths guidance and the NCETM’s support resources. This Work Group will also explore the key principles of teaching for mastery and how these can be used to plan effectively.

 

This Work Group is free to join.
