APPLY NOW   Year 5-8 Continuity Work Groups

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.

There are three opportunities to participate in this work group, one run by Jane Hawkins who is based in Cullompton College (mid Devon) and the second group is run by Phil Eadie based at The Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester and lastly there is a group run by Justin Talbot in based in Bournemouth/Poole.  For more information click on the image or links below:

Building Firm Mathematical Foundations in Reception, a new work group for 2020.

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.

FREE to participating schools

Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Programme 2020/21

The Jurassic Maths Hub is pleased to invite you to apply for our Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Programme 2020/21, with opportunities across Dorset, Devon and BCP. You can find out more information and express an interest in this programme using the links below:

Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Work Groups
This is part of the continuing programme to develop teaching for mastery in mathematics in primary schools. Participants are schools who wish to develop a teaching for mastery approach. Each school sends two teachers to half-termly meetings supported by a Mastery Specialist. These meetings give opportunities for joint observation of lessons as well as collaborative planning. After each of these meetings, all schools agree actions that they will take before the next meeting. Each term the Mastery Specialist completes a school visit to support the school in its development of an action plan and to collaboratively plan with participating teachers. There will be 7 groups across the hub region with schools grouped according to geography.

If you require further information on either the application process of the Programme please email

Please note if your school has already taken part in the Development Programme previously they will NOT be eligible to apply again.

If your school is interested in joining a Mastery Development Work Group then please click HERE to apply.
