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.

Primary Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Primary Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Primary Subject Knowledge Enhancement

Primary teachers wishing to develop enhanced mathematical subject knowledge to improve their mathematics teaching are invited to take part in this project. Teachers will not only develop deeper, more connected understanding of topics on the primary maths curriculum but will explore how children learn mathematical concepts and ways to support this. The approaches developed will be consistent with teaching for mastery.

The Sussex Maths Hub has worked hard to share practice on the Teaching for Mastery approach in the primary phase. Some of this has been distilled into a 3-day course that has been delivered over the last few years. It has provided many primary teachers with a concentrated introduction to Teaching for Mastery through practical sessions. This year we have three courses, all of which have started. We hope to run the courses again next year so please do contact us to register your interest.

Planning for Greater Depth (Primary TfM Focused Issue)

Planning for Greater Depth (Primary TfM Focused Issue)

Planning for Greater Depth (Primary TfM Focused Issue)

This project will consider how teachers can provide opportunities for all children to work at a ‘greater depth’ within the teaching for mastery context. Work Groups will focus on developing teachers’ understanding of how to facilitate activities and questions to ensure that there is sufficient challenge for children when they are ready for it.

In Sussex this is a small project involving eight teachers in four schools who are working together as a Teacher Research Group to reflect on their current practice and clarifying their understanding of what ‘Greater Depth’ means through reflective practice in their own schools and collaborative planning to design activities that support ‘Greater Depth’. Each school will review its own practice and then change practice to improve pedagogical outcomes for children challenging them to work at ‘Greater Depth’.

The Project reflections will be shared at a national level and we hope to invite new schools into the project in 2019/20.
