Support for schools in their second year of teaching for mastery
Those who have worked on establishing teaching for mastery in a Development Work Group become part of an Embedding Work Group in their second year, focusing on systems and culture to support teaching for mastery as well as support for school leadership and subject leadership.
Work Groups in this project will support schools to scale up teaching for mastery approaches from individual teachers’ classrooms, ensuring whole-school practices are consistently adopted. There are six workshops across the year, plus support from a Mastery Specialist.
What will you learn?
You will enhance your mathematical subject knowledge, emphasising key areas of maths
You will plan, teach and reflect on lessons with a mastery approach
Your school leaders will understand the school-wide structures which enable staff to develop mastery approaches
You and your school leaders will establish a set of principles, policies, practices and systems which embody a teaching for mastery approach
Who can take part?
This is for schools who have previously participated in a Development Work Group. All must show a strong commitment for embedding teaching for mastery approaches, and at least the lead teacher from the Development Work Group must have already started using mastery approaches. The school leadership team including the headteacher must also be involved, to ensure there is a whole school commitment.
What is the cost?
The Primary Teaching for Mastery – Embedding project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to state-funded participating schools.
