Overview

The support for transition into KS3 (Year 5 – 8 Continuity) Work Group aims to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and pedagogy.

Following the disruption to education caused by the Covid crisis, this transition is more crucial than ever. A key feature will be understanding how best to prioritise key aspects of the curriculum to help ensure pupils
have mastered the fundamental understanding and skills they need to underpin their progression through upper Key Stage 2 and into Key Stage 3 using the NCTEM Checkpoint materials.

FULLY BOOKED FOR 2021-22. REGISTER INTEREST FOR 2022-23

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?’.

This programme is open to all state-funded primary schools in England. If oversubscribed, priority for places will be given to schools with a high proportion of disadvantaged children.

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.

Overview

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.

If you are interested in this programme and would like further information, download the Information and Application Form.
