Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it

Who can take part?

Phase 1 Communities in this project are for those identified as Early Career Teachers – teachers in their first or second year of teaching. Phase 2 Communities are for those in the early part of their careers. They will have engaged with Phase 1 before engaging with this phase.

What is involved?

Two maths-specific subject knowledge projects are available to support primary Early Career Teachers (ECTs) – one is for ECTs who have not yet participated in this project and one is for those who participated in 2021/22. Both projects offer high-quality subject knowledge and pedagogy maths support for ECTs, recognising the requirements of the ECF.

Communities of ECTs will be formed in these projects, allowing for collaboration and practice-sharing. In both projects, teachers will design effective learning and teaching in maths, and review and analyse their practice.

What will you learn?

  • Your pupils will be seen to elaborate when responding to questions, showing that their answer stems from a secure understanding
  • You will identify essential concepts, knowledge, skills within the topic area and provide opportunity for all pupils to learn and master these critical components
  • You will develop an understanding of approaches to assess pupils’ prior learning, so that learning sequences are planned to take this into account

What is the cost?

The SKTM Primary Early Career Teachers Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it

Who can take part?

These programmes are designed for primary teaching assistants who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. This may be particularly relevant for new TAs or TAs that have not received maths-specific training.

What is involved?

This project is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of primary maths.

It utilises primary teaching assistant-specific materials and focuses on the following mathematical areas: What is effective in the learning and teaching of mathematics?; Number sense (part 1); Number sense (part 2); Additive reasoning; Multiplicative reasoning; Fractions. The modules are each designed to last three to four hours, but may last longer if delivered online. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.

What will you learn?

  • Your pupils will demonstrate a positive attitude towards maths, being willing to have a go, persevere, and share their mathematical ideas
  • You will review your practice as a result of the sessions and make specific adaptations to support the pupils you are working with
  • You will understand the key elements that form number sense, forms of addition and subtraction, forms of multiplication and division, and forms of fractions, including precise language, structures and representations

Strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school

Who can take part?

This project is for both primary and secondary schools. It may be particularly suitable for linked ‘families’ of schools: primary, secondary, etc. A ‘family’ could be a secondary school and their associated (feeder) primary schools or groups of schools from within a MAT. Lead participants should be teachers of Years 5-8, ideally with some responsibility for curriculum development.

What is involved?

Work Groups in this project focus on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8. Participants will explore a selection of high-quality resources: Checkpoints, Multiplicative Reasoning and Algebraic Thinking materials.

A lesson study approach is encouraged where all participants focus on a particular aspect of the maths curriculum and work collaboratively to develop this in their schools. Cross-phase classroom observation and discussion of practice are encouraged wherever possible.

What will you learn?

  • Your pupils in KS2 and KS3 will demonstrate a positive attitude to maths
  • You will make common use of approaches, representations and language across phases
  • You will deepen your knowledge and understanding of the curriculum across KS2 and KS3 and the expectations of pupils at the end of each Key Stage
  • You and your cross-phase colleagues will collaborate on issues of curriculum and pedagogy as a normal part of your schools’ transition practice

What is the cost?

The Years 5-8 Continuity project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Supporting pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 to develop good number sense

What is involved?

This programme focuses on the key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1. Participating schools will receive central training (online and face-to-face) and a wealth of pupil-facing resources.

There is an expectation that schools will provide a daily teaching session for all children of 10 to 15 minutes, in addition to their normal maths lesson. Lead Teachers in schools will also contribute to an online community to share practice and engage in critical reflection.

Who can take part?

Lead participants from Work Group schools will be three teachers – one each from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 – known as Lead Teachers. Some support will also be given to subject leaders and headteachers. Where appropriate, Lead Teachers are expected to support the other teachers in their year group.

This programme and its Work Groups are open to all schools that have not yet engaged with the Mastering Number Programme.

What is the cost?

The Mastering Number Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools. Whilst digital rekenreks are freely available online, schools taking part in the September start cohort of this programme may wish to consider purchasing class sets of physical rekenreks for Year 1 and Year 2 prior to the start of the programme.

Be part of the continuing programme to develop teaching for mastery in maths in primary schools

WHAT IS INVOLVED?

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 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.

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.

WHO CAN TAKE PART?

This programme is for state-funded primary schools in England. Two teachers from each participant school will attend six half-day meetings during the school year, and lead teaching for mastery development in their own school.

WHAT IS THE COST?

The Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Work Groups project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

A Programme for primary schools that want to adopt teaching for mastery in maths, but would benefit from a staged approach

Who can take part?

Schools will have an identifiable barrier to being able to successfully implement teaching for mastery at present. Barriers may include an Ofsted grading of RI or Inadequate, poor pupil progress in maths, serving an area of low social mobility, or issues in the school that have meant the implementation of sustained change has been difficult.

What is involved?

Schools with additional challenges need bespoke support to ensure their systems and cultures are conducive to a teaching for mastery approach. Those who are not yet ready to join a Teaching for Mastery Development Work Group will prepare for implementing a teaching for mastery approach which is embedded and sustained across the whole school. This will involve receiving support from Mastery Readiness Leads, and developing classroom culture and attitudes to maths that will support a teaching for mastery approach, both on the part of teachers and their pupils.

After the year-long programme, Mastery Readiness schools will be ready to progress into Development Work Groups and beyond.

What is the cost?

There is no charge for participation in this programme. However, schools must ensure that staff are released to engage in the workshops and school visits, and that the headteacher attends events where appropriate.
