Teaching for Mastery Readiness Programme

This programme is for schools who have a commitment to developing a teaching for mastery approach long term, but who currently need additional support for improving mathematics teaching, learning and leadership. Mastery Readiness Work Groups focus on two key areas:

  • The development of effective leadership that will remove barriers and put in place structures to support change and teacher professional development in relation to teaching for mastery
  • Development of classroom culture and attitudes to mathematics that will support a teaching for mastery approach, both on the part of teachers and their pupils.

There is a strict eligibility criteria to join this Work Group. To find out more click here.

Developing Teaching for Mastery

In 2021/22, Maths Hubs will be running primary mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups led by Mastery Specialists. This programme is for schools who have a commitment to developing a teaching for mastery approach. Although the participation involves two teachers attending events outside of school, it is expected that these two teachers lead development across the whole school. Schools who have completed the Mastery Readiness Programme move on to this programme automatically.

Embedding Teaching for Mastery

Schools who participated in a TfM Development Work Group in 2020/21 are eligible to continue to work with a Mastery Specialist through the TfM Embedding Work Group. This work group comprises half-termly TRGs and one school visit from the specialist during the year. The aim of these groups is to support schools in embedding structures and systems to ensure that all teachers can be supported to implement TfM across the whole school. This involves working with school leaders and classroom practitioners and establishing systems of professional development which support continual improvement and refinement within and across schools.

Sustaining Teaching for Mastery

Any school that has previously engaged in a TfM Development Work Group is now eligible to join a TfM Sustaining Work Group. This work group seeks to establish continuing support for collaborative planning and specialist subject knowledge development in primary schools and leadership within the school.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (Teachers)

The purpose of the programmes in this project is to support primary teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in the maths classroom.

The programme is based on five core primary modules:

  • Policy and impact on practice
  • Number sense
  • Additive reasoning
  • Multiplicative reasoning
  • Fractions.

To express an interest in joining this Work Group then complete the form here.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (Early Careers Teachers)

This project is designed to support Early Career Teachers (teachers in their first two years of teaching). The aim of this community is to work deeply on one area of maths, drawing in the associated pedagogy, and will include lesson analysis and lesson design.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (Teaching Assistants)

The purpose of the programmes in this project is to support primary teaching assistants (TAs) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in the maths classroom. The focus this year will be 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.

Mastering Number

The project aims to secure firm foundations in additive relationships and 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 that exemplifies good number sense. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes and progression through KS1 to support progression in the future.

Applications for the Mastering Number project 2021-22 are now closed. Watch this space for updates about next year’s offering.

CODE Catch-Up Christmas 2020

All of us here at CODE hope that you had as good a summer break as you could during these strange and challenging times. As we start the new academic year we continue to be as passionate as ever about supporting mathematics for young people in our area. We’ve modified some of our planned activity which will mean that initially a lot of our work will take place online. We hope, if the situation surrounding COVID allows, that we will be able to resume face-to-face sessions late in the Spring or Summer term.

Wow – what a strange and busy year it has been! So much has happened which we couldn’t have anticipated and during these exceptionally challenging circumstances some of our activity has inevitably had to be changed and adapted. Having said this, it is testament to everyone involved in the CODE hub and their desire to improve teaching and learning in mathematics for all young people that we have continued to offer a programme of support and development. Thank you.
