Sustaining Teaching for Mastery

Has your school previously been part of a teacher research group or had a trained mastery specialist?  If yes, then your school is eligible to join our sustaining Teaching for Mastery programme. We have created a range of programmes for schools this year. Sustaining schools are welcome to join the programmes that are most appropriate for them.

Teaching for Mastery MOT :

 This Work Group is aimed at schools who have begun their Teaching for Mastery journey but would benefit from revisiting the Five Big Ideas to take stock and identify current priorities within their professional development packages. It will be particularly relevant for those schools who have had a high turnover of staff or a new maths leader. 

Over two half-day sessions, teachers will enhance their mathematical knowledge and understanding and be encouraged to reflect upon how the Teaching for Mastery approach can continue to be effectively delivered in their schools through discussion and collaboration with other participants. 

This Work Group is now closed. Recruitment for 22/23 will start after half term.

 

Ofsted – support for maths leaders 

This half-day session aims to support maths leaders in their preparation for an inspection and deep dive in mathematics through discussion and collaboration with others. It will give participants the confidence to showcase the maths in their school and the language to clearly convey their vision and journey.  

This Work Group is now closed. Recruitment for 22/23 will start after half term.

‘Where’s the Challenge?’ 

This Work Group aims to unpick the concepts of challenge and depth through the Teaching for Mastery approach. During the two half-day sessions, teachers will engage in group discussion, research and collaborative planning to develop their understanding of how to effectively challenge children of all abilities to deepen understanding. 

This Work Group is now closed. Recruitment for 22/23 will start after half term.

 

Effective Planning 

This project aims to support teachers from across the key stages to plan a sequence of effective maths lessons in which all children are supported and challenged. Through the un-picking of the Ready to Progress and Curriculum Prioritisation materials, teachers will be supported to reflect on their current planning and identify where these materials could be used to deepen children’s understanding and develop their own subject knowledge. Collaborative planning sessions will give opportunities to work with teachers from across the region to share expertise and continue their professional development. 

This Work Group is now closed. Recruitment for 22/23 will start after half term.
