Primary

Year 5-8 Continuity Work Group

Work Groups in this project aim to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8. Central to the Work Group is the promotion of cross phase communication between teachers to address issues of maths knowledge and learning transition as distinct from pastoral considerations. Whilst many Work Groups will focus on using Multiplicative Reasoning resources, Work Groups can explore any aspect of the KS2/3 curriculum.  2022/23 programme details will follow shortly.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Maths (SKTM) – Early
Years Programme

This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils with their mathematics across the provision. 2022/23 programme details will follow shortly.

Mastering Number

Work Groups in this project are aimed at schools who are currently developing a teaching for mastery approach in KS1 and KS2. Early Years practitioners and senior leaders will develop their understanding of how EY best practice feeds into a teaching for mastery approach, and build firm foundations for all children so that they are ready to progress into Year 1. Participants will consider how to build clear progression in mathematical concepts and how to make these accessible to young children. 2022/23 programme details will follow shortly.

Primary Mastery Specialist Programme

Following the successful first five cohorts of the Mastery Specialist Programme, the NCETM and Maths Hubs are now seeking to recruit a sixth cohort of expert primary school teachers to develop and work as Primary Mastery Specialists. 2022/23 programme details will follow shortly.

Primary Mastery Readiness 

This programme is for schools that are currently in need of additional support for improving mathematics teaching, learning and leadership. This is a bespoke service giving the school leadership team one-to-one support in developing a mastery approach to deliver mathematics throughout the school. Participating in Mastery Readiness gives a four year support programme: Year 1 FREE Bespoke to the school Begins in September 2021 Year 2 Participate in the DfE funded supported Teaching for Mastery Development programme Year 3 Funded Embedding Mastery Year Year 4 Free opportunities to sustain mastery and train other staff.  To be eligible the school must have an identifiable reason for being unable to engage in developing teaching for mastery at the moment. 2022/23 programme details will follow shortly.

Primary Teaching for Mastery Development 

The Work Groups are intended for schools that are already committed to using teaching for mastery approaches for primary mathematics. Schools should also have the capacity for engaging in significant development work during 2021/22.Benefits for participating schools:·         High quality support for teacher professional development for the lead teachers, facilitated by the Mastery Specialist·         Support for the head teacher in addressing leadership issues related to teaching for mastery from the Mastery Specialist and the Maths Hub’s leadership·   Opportunity to work closely with other schools also developing teaching for mastery·  No charge for participation and a grant of £1000 to help subsidise teacher release time·  Financial help, should the school make the decision to purchase textbooks (subject to DfE confirmation.)   2022/23 programme details will follow shortly.

Primary Sustaining Mastery

This project is aimed at schools previously involved in teaching for mastery, helping schools to sustain their teaching for mastery (TfM) approach for mathematics. The project seeks to establish continuing support for collaborative planning and specialist subject knowledge development in primary schools and leadership within the school.  Benefits for participating schools: All teachers in the participating schools will enhance their mathematics subject knowledge with an emphasis on progression especially within the key areas of mathematics addressed by the Work Group·   Subject leaders will learn more about how to establish an effective collaborative planning culture for their teachers, which supports ongoing specialist subject knowledge development.  All school staff understand and value ongoing professional development in order to uphold the cycle of improvement.  Please contact mathshub@painsley.staffs.sch.uk to find out more.
