Assessment & Greater Depth:
How to develop planning and 
the assessment of ‘Greater Depth’ in Primary Schools

The Sussex Maths Hub Primary Lead Team in collaboration with Newick TSA and East Sussex LA are delighted to offer teachers a newly developed one day module with follow up twilight on Assessment & Greater Depth that will enable colleagues to:

  • develop regular accurate assessment that drives the future teaching programme
  • demonstrate that are they able to plan coherent lessons that reflect assessment information gained to allow all children to have success in their lessons
  • have strategies to ensure that children are giving clear explanations of mathematical ideas and that they have opportunities to reason at a greater depth and show their understanding in future assessments
  • set exercises for children that allow the children to explore their depth of understanding
  • enhance mathematics subject knowledge with a particular emphasis on progression and greater depth within key areas of mathematics
  • understand the key principles to deliver overall effective teaching, planning and assessment which support children to work and be accurately assessed at greater depth within a teaching for mastery approach

This opportunity is FREE to attend, but please book on as there is limited capacity.

Date: To be confirmed

Venue: Mile Oak Primary School, Graham Avenue, Portslade, Brighton, BN41 2WN

Time: 9:30am to 3:00pm

Overview

SEN students are able to achieve their best when teaching is adapted to help meet their individual needs.

This Work Group is designed to help primary and secondary school teachers gain greater understanding and confidence when teaching maths to SEN students.

The sessions will focus on:

  • Evidencing progress of pupils working below the expected levels, focusing on the breaking down of targets to ensure they are meaningful and achievable
  • Approaches to learning – barriers to learning for children with an SEN
  • Resources and activities – the use of manipulatives to support SEN pupils and help gain a deeper understanding

Tom Brown (Woodland Meed), Richard Wilkins (Manor Green College) and Nina Pearson (Oak Grove College) are leading this Work Group. The three sessions are taking place on:

Session 1 – Tuesday 28 April

Session 2 – Tuesday 2 June

Session 3 – Tuesday 30 June

All sessions are running from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

This is a FREE Work Group for 14 teachers from Sussex schools, with ideally two teachers from seven schools. All participants will be expected to commit to attending all three sessions.

Overview

Developing a good understanding of lesson design is vital in the teaching for mastery approach. Teachers in this Work Group will work collaboratively to unpick the key elements of mastery lesson design, exploring how the Professional Development Materials produced by the NCETM and Maths Hubs can be used to shape and refine lessons so that they are as effective as possible. Teachers will also have time to explore ‘depth’ and how this may look with different mathematical concepts.

Johnnie Conboy is leading this Work Group, and the meetings will be at Coldean Primary School on the following dates:

Tuesday 28 January

Wednesday 11 March

Friday 19 June

All sessions are from 1:30pm to 4:30pm.

This opportunity is for SEVEN SCHOOLS from Sussex, with TWO TEACHERS  from each school participating in the project. Once a school has decided which two teachers would like to attend, each teacher should book their place separately.

Making Every Maths Lesson Count

Run by Emma McCrea, author of Making Every Maths Lesson Count, this evidence-informed PD programme draws on the low effort, high impact strategies shared in the book. The programme is formed of regular sessions in which the strategies will be explored and teachers share their experience of their use. With a focus on sustainable changes to teaching practice, the programme is suitable for teachers of maths from KS2 through to KS5.

This Work Group is taking place at St Paul’s Catholic College, Burgess Hill, on:

Session 1 – Monday 20 January, 13:00 to 17:00

Session 2 – Thursday 27 February, 14:30 to 16:30

NCETM YR 5-8 Programme:
Progress of maths from primary to secondary school.

Are you a KS2 teacher, KS3 mathematics teacher, ITE or NQT teacher?

Are you concerned about the many changes to the mathematics curriculum in KS2 and KS3?

We are a small Work Group looking at how to mitigate the drop in mathematical ability from primary to secondary school.  We are focussing on the EEF recommendations follow the Ofted “wasted years” report, specifically the use of manipulatives for problem solving.

If you are interested in working collaboratively to dissect different approaches to teaching across the different Key Stages to help provide your students with continuality from primary to secondary school, then please sign up and join us.

Victoria Sims, Assistant Director of Maths at Bexhill Academy, is leading this Work Group. There are four sessions over this academic year, running 4pm – 6pm, on:

Session 1 – Tuesday 21 January

Session 2 – Tuesday 10 March

Session 3 – Tuesday 5 May

Session 4 – Tuesday 16 June

This is a FREE Work Group for 16 teachers from Sussex Schools. All participants will be expected to commit to attending all sessions.

Y5-8 Continuity in fractions learning

A seamless transition between primary and secondary school mathematics helps to ensure progress (EEF, 2018) … this project is an opportunity to share and develop best practice cross-phase with a specific focus on fractions learning.  How do we ensure that strong foundations are laid in KS2 and built on effectively in KS3? Join this project to find out! Workshops consist of four 2 hour twilight sessions (4pm – 6.45pm) and a cross-phase visit.

Teachers from different phases will collaborate together in this work group to develop ways to improve the continuum of provision between Key Stages 2 and 3; with a specific focus on consistency in language, representations and expectations in order to build foundations that are shown to improve progression.

Participants in this project will develop a more consistent approach to learning in fractions through discussion, joint lesson design, delivery and observation to support continuity. 

Karen Nanson is leading this Work Group, which will be running at the University of Chichester (Bognor Campus). The meetings will take place across 4 twilights, with inter-session tasks designed to embed the principles and ideas discussed. The dates are:

Tuesday 10 March

Wednesday 29 April – CANCELLED

Thursday 21 May – CANCELLED

Thursday 25 June – CANCELLED

This opportunity is for up to 14 teachers from Sussex, with ideally one teacher each from a secondary school and an associated feeder school and each having an element of responsibility for an aspect of the mathematics curriculum. Not meeting this criterion will not be a barrier to participation. Participants must however be prepared to model approaches and lead change in their school.
