Secondary TfM Work Groups 2018-19

Work Groups in this project will be led by a secondary Mastery Specialist trained by NCETM/Maths Hubs, with experience of implementing a mastery approach in their own school. Each specialist will work with two mathematics departments in developing practice and systems to support teaching for mastery, as well as facilitating the collaborative professional development of two teachers from each of the schools. These two teachers will become ‘Mastery Advocates’ within their own departments where they will begin to work with their own colleagues to embed mastery principles and practices.

Headteacher Invitation to Mastery Event – What does teaching for mastery look like in the UK?

VENUE:
St. Paul’s Catholic College,
Jane Murray Way,
Burgess Hill RH15 8GA

DATE:
Friday 1 March

TIME:
09:15 – 13:00

This course is open to Headteachers of schools currently participating in a NCETM Teaching for Mastery Teacher Research Group

We would like to share best practice from schools and school leaders who have adopted the Teaching for Mastery approach with success in their schools. We recognise every school is different, so we will look at the ways schools have adapted the approach to fit their setting and circumstances. We will also discuss how different schools have developed practice from the initial launch to embedding practices aiming for a longer term maturity model to support school improvement priorities. 

Specialists from our Primary Mastery Team will be on hand to lead input on:

  • Fluency
  • Concrete, Pictorial & Abstract 
  • Variation Theory (Procedural & Conceptual)
  • Developing Mathematical Thinking 
  • Challenge & Support (How to provide Same Day Intervention & opportunities to work at Greater Depth)

There will be the opportunity to look at lesson resources, discuss lesson design features to support monitoring and to see outcomes in pupils’ books. We will also build in time for Q&A. 

Lunch and Refreshments will be provided.

The places for this event are funded by the Maths Hub and will allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Developing Working Partnerships with ITT Providers

The aim of this project is to further work already being carried out in many Maths Hubs who are working with local ITT providers, establish what is working well and spread good practice across the Maths Hub network. In each Hub there will be a Work Group Lead who is already a member of the ITT community. During the year the Work Group Lead will contact all local ITT providers and support the development of a network for these, promoting good practice and sharing work on the teaching for mastery approach with trainee teachers.

Work Groups in this project will be formed with at least one special school working with a small group of mainstream schools (either primary, secondary or both). They will promote reasoning and use of manipulatives, providing a different approach to working with SEND students across mainstream and special schools. The pedagogy introduced, and any resources trialled, would support the principles of teaching for mastery.

NCETM Accredited PD Lead Programmes

This ongoing work in all Maths Hubs is for practitioners involved in leading the professional development of colleagues and seeking to gain accreditation as an ‘NCETM Accredited Professional Development Lead’. Participants will take part in three face-to-face days (bespoke to Early Years, Primary, Secondary or Post-16) over the course of 2018/19, together with institution-based work and individual study undertaken in between these days. They will plan, run and evaluate a professional development programme for a group of teachers and record their planning, evaluation and reflection.

Teaching Assistant Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Teaching Assistants involved in this project will develop key stage specific subject knowledge to enable them to support and/or deliver mathematics in the classroom or in small intervention groups. The project will enable TAs to develop deeper understanding of both the content and pedagogy of the maths curriculum and understand how TAs are most effectively deployed for impact on learning.

In Sussex, the Maths Hub have successfully run a series of two day courses that have been very well attended and received over the last few years. They are run by experienced trainers with excellent prior knowledge.

This year we have two courses, one in West Sussex and one in East Sussex. 

For more information please contact the project leads:

Course Leaders: Debbie Streatfield and Faye Heath, Independent Mathematics Consultants – Debbie and Faye have been leading numerous highly successful primary maths courses for the Sussex Maths Hub. They are both very experienced teachers who continue to teach on a regular basis and use their up-to-date knowledge throughout their courses.

Supporting Children in Primary Mathematics – a Course for Teaching Assistants

This course is aimed at:

  • Primary teaching and learning assistants and HLTAs who would benefit from developing their knowledge and understanding of the mathematics curriculum to support effective learning for their children;
  • Primary teaching and learning assistants and HLTAs who wish to develop their mathematical subject knowledge to support effective learning for their children.

During the 2 days participants will:

  • Develop their own subject knowledge in line with the 2014 mathematics curriculum;
  • Develop some effective ways to enhance their questioning in order to support and extend the learners’ thinking;
  • Explore the importance of using precise mathematical vocabulary and language and how it impacts on children’s learning;
  • Understand how resources models and images can support children’s thinking at the different stages of the primary mathematics curriculum;
  • Reflect on their learning and plan to undertake follow up work in school.

This is a national NCETM work group and therefore participants will be required to:

  • Keep a reflective journal that captures the impact of the work undertaken on the course and back in school;
  • Complete online evaluations requested by the NCETM, including a summative impact report;
  • Complete gap tasks set and reflect on these.

Please consider the work involved when booking participants from your school onto this work group.

Due to the anticipated popularity of this work group, the two days will be held twice at two different venues, one in East Sussex, and one in West Sussex. Any school in the three local authorities are welcome to attend at any of the venues.
