This is for primary schools who have previously been involved in a Teaching for Mastery Development and Embedding Work Group, or who are Mastery Specialist schools. It brings together schools working to sustain their mastery approach to maths. The Programme is fully funded so is free to participating schools.
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.
Next year will see a slightly different approach to previous years where Work Groups using extended lesson study will return to gathering around a lesson, with each Work Group visiting one lesson each term and each participant involved in collaboratively planning one of the lessons.
A short video has been made by our Primary Maths Lead Dr Ruth Trundley to explain the way the Work Groups will operate and enable schools to see how this will benefit their ongoing work developing mathematics.
NB: If your school is new to Teaching for Mastery then this is NOT the right Group for you. Please look to apply for either Mastery Readiness or our TfM Development Programme.
This Programme is for schools who have previously taken part in the Teaching for Mastery Programme.
