Curriculum Prioritisation in Primary Mathematics for 2021-22

An expert guide to the newly released national materials from the NCETM.

  • Are you a busy school leader or primary teacher who wants to be up to date and in ‘the loop’ about the latest support and resources available for primary mathematics?
  • Do you recognise, as outlined in the latest DfE guidance, that there will be a need for curriculum prioritisation during the academic year 2021-22?
  • Would you like a ‘tour’ led by an expert guide through the latest free materials produced by the NCETM to support teaching and learning from Year 1 to Year 6?
  • Are you interested to know more about other free support that will be available to teachers locally next year through the Sussex Maths Hub?

If so, join us for our next webinar on Monday 13th September from 4pm-5:15pm when we will welcome Kate Mole, Assistant Maths Hub Lead from London SW to take us on a ‘guided tour’ of the newly released materials to support curriculum prioritisation. Kate is a very experienced mastery specialist teacher who has played a key role in the development of the new resources. Our own friendly Sussex Maths Hub team will also be on hand to manage the chat box and ask Kate the key questions we all want to know the answers to, about long, medium and short term plans plus the flexibility built into the overview. Kate will share the rationale, model some of the materials and talk you through the planning process. We will also allow plenty of time for Q & A!

At the Sussex Maths Hub we believe strength comes through collaboration. It is our goal to support leaders and teachers so that pupils develop knowledge, skills and confidence in mathematics. We work together to address the specific challenges we face, and after two disrupted years due to Covid, the newly released national materials from the NCETM to support curriculum prioritisation could not have come at a better time.

Here is some feedback from our previous webinars:

“Thank you very much for this really informative webinar. The resources look great and I’m looking forward to using them in my class and sharing them with other colleagues.”

“Thank you all! Another excellent webinar run by Sussex Maths Hub.”

So don’t delay, secure your place and sign up today. Then sit back, pour yourself a beverage and get ready to be part of a conversation that we hope will have a really positive impact on schools, teachers and children throughout next year and beyond!

Overview

MASTERING NUMBER: Supporting pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to develop good number sense.

This project aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1 to support success in the future.

Lead participants from Work Group schools will be three teachers, one each from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, with some support given to subject leaders and headteachers. Work Group lead participants will be supported by central training and resources. There is an expectation that they will provide a daily teaching session for all children of 10 to 15 minutes, in addition to their normal maths lesson. There is also the expectation that they will contribute to an online community to share practice and engage in critical reflection.

Participants will:

  • develop skills in working in a professional learning community, reflecting with other colleagues on their own practice, and refining skills through support and challenge within a community
  • develop a secure understanding of how to build firm mathematical foundations with a stronger subject and pedagogical understanding for EYFS and KS1
  • work to develop intentional teaching strategies focused on developing fluency in calculation and number sense for ALL children
  • develop understanding and their use of appropriate manipulatives to support their teaching of mathematical structures.

If, before applying, you would like to find out more about what this project involves for schools and teachers, there will be three live online information/taster sessions where more details will be given. For interested schools, only one person should register for the session (the headteacher, maths lead, Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 teacher). To register, please visit this page of the NCETM Website, and scroll down to ‘How can you find out more?’.

Overview

SECONDARY TEACHING FOR MASTERY – DEVELOPMENT

Introduce mastery across your department.

Whether you want to take a teaching for mastery approach in your own classroom and department, or introduce mastery in both your own school and beyond, we have a CPD opportunity for you. The NCETM and Maths Hubs are offering funded professional development activities, available in 2021/22.

Secondary maths teachers whose schools want to introduce and embed teaching for mastery can nominate two teachers (Mastery Advocates) to join a Work Group. You will be part of a locally-based group of teachers who meet regularly to develop professional knowledge and expertise, as well as receiving bespoke support.

In a Teaching for Mastery Work Group you will:

  • collaborate with colleagues from other local schools to share best practice
  • get individual school support and guidance from a local leader of maths education (LLME)
  • take away ideas to help your students become more confident mathematicians, ready to tackle GCSEs and A levels
  • introduce and embed teaching for mastery in your classroom and department

Mastery Advocates

The fully funded programme enables you and another teacher from your school to become ‘Mastery Advocates’. Initially you will be part of a Work Group for a year. You will also get in-school support from a Mastery Specialist. Beyond this, you will continue to work with your local Maths Hub and take part in a Work Group as you embed mastery across your department.

This opportunity is suitable for teachers with the commitment, experience and authority to lead developmental work across the department. It requires the support of your headteacher or a member of SLT.

Overview

PRIMARY TEACHING FOR MASTERY – DEVELOPMENT

This project is part of the continuing programme to develop teaching for mastery in maths in primary schools.

During the 2021/22 school year, Maths Hubs across England will be working with thousands of primary schools to continue the spread of teaching for mastery across England. The Teaching for Mastery Programme is a professional development opportunity designed to support teachers to develop best practice in maths in their school. It is suitable for schools interested in implementing a teaching for mastery approach to maths.

If your school is ready to start developing a teaching for mastery approach, you can join a Work Group starting in the new academic year. Two teachers from each participating school join a Work Group, consisting of six or seven local primary schools. Each Work Group is led by a trained Primary Mastery Specialist.

Work Groups (sometimes known as Teacher Research Groups, or TRGs) meet regularly to plan, observe and discuss teaching for mastery. In between meetings, teachers explore mastery approaches in their own classrooms and across their school. Work Groups run for a year initially, with many continuing beyond the first year as mastery is embedded in participants’ schools.

Support is provided from a local classroom-based Mastery Specialist who leads the group. This model of professional development involves hands-on learning and peer-to-peer support. It is evidence-based and designed to support substantial long-term change.

MASTERY READINESS: Take a step into the primary Teaching for Mastery Programme

Lots of schools are ready to start their mastery journey, and some would benefit from initial support before becoming part of the full programme. 

The Mastery Readiness Programme is for primary schools that want to adopt teaching for mastery in maths, but would benefit from a staged approach.

Schools that are successful in implementing sustained and meaningful change through teaching for mastery have key foundations already in place.

These key foundations include:

  • shared vision and culture around the importance of maths
  • a belief that every child can achieve highly in maths
  • a positive mindset towards maths amongst all staff
  • good maths subject knowledge amongst teachers and TAs
  • systems that maximise learning, such as timetabling, intervention, curriculum and pedagogical approaches
  • teaching of arithmetical proficiency for all children, to support mathematical fluency by reducing cognitive load
  • ongoing staff development, which is valued by all staff and senior leaders.
