Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics Programmes
This project is designed to support primary teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils with their mathematics across the provision.
The programme is based on four core primary modules:
An additional module offers an introduction which sets the scene for the current maths teaching landscape. Depending on the structure of the programme at a local level, the time commitment will be equivalent to three or four days.
Enhance their maths subject knowledge with an emphasis on the key structures in each mathematical area covered
Understand the key elements that form number sense, forms of addition and subtraction, forms of multiplication and division, and forms of fractions, including precise language, structures and representations
Review their practice as a result of the sessions and make specific adaptations to impact on pupil outcomes
This year we are offering two cohorts enabling more schools and teachers to participate in the programme and enhance their subject knowledge. Sessions have been designed to take place online allowing greater flexibility for staff with no travel commitments.
All sessions take place in the afternoon from 1.00pm – 4.00pm.

This programme is designed for teachers who would like to further develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. It will be particularly relevant for NQTs/RQTs, teachers that have moved phases or teachers that have not received maths-specific training. Open to schools in Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth.
The SKTM – primary programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
