2019/20 Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Work Groups

TEACHING FOR MASTERY DEVELOPMENT WORK GROUPS 2019-2020

 

This project is part of the continuing programme to develop teaching for mastery in maths in primary schools. The Sussex Maths Hub has a team of Primary Mastery Specialists who have taken part in national training. Each of these specialists leads a group of 6 or 7 schools in developing their approach to teaching for mastery, through collaborative CPD and bespoke in-school support. Primary teachers interested in developing mastery in their school are invited to join this exciting large-scale project.
