SECONDARY TEACHING FOR MASTERY
SUSTAINING YEAR 3 AND BEYOND
A vibrant professional learning community to reflect upon and develop mastery approaches
What is involved?
This project is for departments who have previously participated in Development Work Groups. While the Mastery Advocates from these departments will be significant members of the Work Group, the whole department is a member of this professional learning community. Each Work Group will have a focus for the year. The four foci for 2023/24 are: developing mathematical thinking; developing coherence; developing mathematical coherence for learners across maths and science; and a bespoke teaching for mastery focus.
What will you learn?
Your students will develop a deep, secure and connected understanding of the maths they are learning
You will continue to develop teaching for mastery approaches consistently across your department
You and your department will collaborate to create a coherent curriculum in a culture of professional learning
You will develop and implement a coherent and ambitious sustained development plan
Who can take part?
These Work Groups are for all departments that have previously participated in Mastery Development Work Groups and all Cohort 1-6 Mastery Specialist Departments. The two lead participants continue to be Advocates who have participated in a Development Work Group and key teachers from a Mastery Specialist’s department, but particular Work Group sessions may sometimes be joined by participants’ departmental colleagues.
What is the cost?
The Secondary Teaching for Mastery – Development project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to state funded participating schools.
