Primary Teaching for Mastery Sustaining
Building collaborative communities

Continued support to embed and refine a teaching for mastery approach and improve pupil outcomes.

What is involved?

Sustaining Mastery 2023-2024 will build on the success of the current programme.  Some adaptations have been made after taking feedback into account. 

The Sustaining programme will involve the school maths lead, and a colleague, attending three face to face workshops and three online reflection workshops. With the support of the Work Group leaders, participants (school ambassadors) will consider evidence from research and engage in professional debate and critical reflection. Different mathematical concepts will be considered in depth alongside overarching themes of mathematical learning behaviours, oracy, adaptive teaching and lesson design.

The three face to face workshops will run from 9:30am—3:30pm (Autumn 2, Spring 1, Summer 1).  Online workshops will be twilight sessions, running from 3:45pm—5:15pm

There will be a choice of 4 Sustaining Mastery Work Groups running next year.

Eastern region (venue to be confirmed but likely to be in the Ely/Soham area).

Work Group A     Maths Lead and a colleague from Y1, Y2 or Y3

Work Group B    Maths Lead and a colleague from Y4, Y5 or Y6

Western region (venue to be confirmed but likely to be in the Ramsey/March area).

Work Group C     Maths Lead and a colleague from Y1, Y2 or Y3

Work Group D    Maths Lead and a colleague from Y4, Y5 or Y6

Dates for workshops will be released soon.

Who can take part?

Maths leads from schools that are currently taking part in the Sustaining Teaching for Mastery Programme.

What is involved?

This Work Group is a Research and Innovation Work Group. We will explore and discuss relevant research. We will discuss different pedagogies and task which may impact learning. Innovation is encouraged. The specific focus will be on how oracy strategies can impact disadvantaged pupils understanding of mathematics.

We will explore how verbalising thinking, using representations, can impact on learning and effective teaching.

Participants will attend the collaborative sessions and then reflect on the impact of pedagogies/tasks in the classroom.
