Maths Hubs Programme 2014–2018 from NCETM on Vimeo.

NCETM have produced a new short video highlighting some of the work carried out by Maths Hubs in their first three years. The release coincides with the news that funding for the programme is now secure until 2020.

The fourth edition of the NCETM Primary Magazine this school year is out now

Includes contributions from our Mastery Specialist Nicola Ballantine and our Teaching for Mastery Lead Kate Mole on devising ways to work with 'rapid graspers'  and books that primary teachers have found helpful in teaching maths

Primary Mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups

Information and Application for Pilot Work Group 2018

In 2018-19, all Maths Hubs will be running primary mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups led by Mastery Specialists. We are now seeking to recruit schools for five Pilot Work Groups, each involving up to seven schools.  The closing date for applications to join the pilot workgroups is Friday 23rd March 2018.

The Teaching for Mastery Pilot Work Groups

During the spring and summer terms, The London SW Maths Hubs will be running five primary mathematics Teaching for Mastery Pilot Work Groups. Each Work Group will be led by one of the Maths Hub’s Mastery Specialists and involve up to seven primary schools. During these two terms, they will work closely together to begin to introduce and develop approaches to Teaching for Mastery. The Pilot Work Group activity will include:

Each school identifying two teachers  to lead developments within their school: one must be a member of SLT or maths lead and the other should be a teacher who has the capacity to make significant pedagogical changes to their practice

The two teachers working together with the Mastery Specialist and teachers from the other Pilot Work Group schools in two TRG meetings

The lead teachers, supported by their head teacher, working with colleagues to begin to develop Teaching for Mastery approaches in the classroom, supported by professional development activity

Who can apply

The Pilot Work Groups are intended for schools that are already committed to using Teaching for Mastery approaches for primary mathematics. It is hoped that these schools will continue to work with their Mastery Specialist and will be part of the funded Work Group throughout 2018-2019. Therefore, schools who apply should have the capacity for engaging in significant development work during 2018-19. Schools that have already begun to engage with Teaching for Mastery are more likely to be prioritised by the Maths Hub.

How to apply

Schools interested in applying to be part of a Pilot Work Group in 2018 should contact Lesley Dibbens Hub Admnistrator to request an application form.
