Work Groups for Secondary


The London SW Maths hub will deliver nationally coordinated projects being run by the maths hub network in 2020/2021 in the following areas:

Year 5-8 Continuity Development

The project aims to improve communication between Key Stages 2 and 3 by taking an aspect of the mathematics curriculum or a pedagogical approach as the focus for the work.

Teachers from different phases work together to develop a consistent approach to their chosen aspect through discussion, joint lesson design and delivery, observation and the development of documentation to support continuity. As a result, channels of communication are established and there is an increased focus on curriculum and pedagogical continuity at key transition points which supports children as they move from KS2 to KS3.


Challenging Topics at GCSE 
Aimed at secondary school teachers of GCSE Maths. Work Groups in this project will focus on participant teachers working together to ‘unpick’ (i.e. analyse, deconstruct and trace through the curriculum) a challenging topic from GCSE Mathematics.
Participants will develop insight into the associated difficulties and misconceptions to support teaching in the short term, but also consider the implications for longer term curriculum design.

Secondary Teaching for Mastery Development Work Groups

Recruitment is now underway for Secondary Teaching for Mastery Work Groups schools for 2020/21. Schools that want to introduce and embed Teaching for Mastery can nominate two teachers to join a Work Group. See more details on the news page and how to apply.
