Please see our pathway of support for schools in developing mastery. The first stage of this development is our Mastery Readiness programme. We will offer support to schools for at least four years to ensure mastery can be fully implemented.
Beginning in the autumn term and continuing through the academic year, we will accept seven schools to engage in the following activities, which will include:
Participating in the programme will provide the following benefits to schools:
Schools chosen to participate in the programme commit to the following expectations:
Since 2014, The NCETM and Maths Hubs have been working together to develop approaches to teaching for mastery within primary mathematics. This has been partly informed by the teaching of mathematics in high performing South East Asian jurisdictions. In the last three years the NCETM and Maths Hubs recruited teachers to participate in a Mastery Specialists development programme. Once trained, Mastery Specialists work with other schools in teaching for mastery Work Groups.
Each Work Group will be led by one of the Maths Hub’s Mastery Specialists and involve six or seven primary schools. During the year, they will work closely together to introduce and develop approaches to teaching for mastery. The Work Group activity will include:
Participating in the Work Group will provide the following benefits to schools:
Who can apply
The Work Groups are intended for schools that are committed to using teaching for mastery approaches for primary mathematics. Schools should also have the capacity for engaging in significant development work during the year.
Expectations of participating schools
Schools chosen to participate in the Work Group commit to the following expectations:
There is no charge to schools participating in the Work Group. Each school will receive a £1000 grant towards the cost of the required teacher release time and £2000 matched funding for the purchase of textbooks.
