Primary Teaching for Mastery – Sustaining

Course Details:
Area: Primary
Time Commitment: 3 days or equivalent
Aim: Supporting schools to continue teaching for mastery – phase 3 of the programme

Who can take part?

Schools will have previously participated in a Development Work Group and might have received support for embedding mastery. Participating schools must show strong commitment from their leadership for sustaining mastery approaches, and for most teachers to have already started using these.

Each school will have a lead participant in the Work Group, normally the maths lead. At different points in the year, other teachers will also participate.

What is involved?

Sustaining Work Groups are a permanent form of support where schools can focus on continued improvement, consistency and refinement of teaching for mastery. Teachers, maths leads and headteachers are all involved, striving to support teachers, and looking at collaborative planning and subject knowledge development. Workshops are hosted in different schools during the year, with the first held in a Mastery Specialist’s school.

For 2023-24, we will be making some changes to the structure of this programme to allow schools greater flexibility in the areas they would like to focus on and develop throughout the year. Some of the themes to choose from include: mathematical thinking, curriculum design, improving mathematical talk, and using variation in lesson and task design. There will, of course, be our usual themes of developing specialist subject knowledge, collaboration and leadership.

What will you learn?

  • You and your school will enhance your mathematical subject knowledge, emphasising key areas of maths
  • You and your school will plan, teach and reflect on lessons with a mastery approach
  • You and your school 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

What is the cost?

The Primary Teaching for Mastery Sustaining project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

What is the time commitment?

This programme consists of 6 half-day workshops (half-termly).
