Teaching for Mastery
TEACHING FOR MASTERY
Primary Maths Hubs continue to promote Teaching for Mastery in schools across England. In November 2016, we hosted two Chinese teachers, Carrie and Nancy, who produced fabulous showcase events throughout the Solent region.
Our Teaching for Mastery Leads for the Solent are (jointly) Sue Wilson, Executive Headteacher, Northern Parade Primary School and Jess Paul, Assistant Headteacher and SLE. We are currently training eight Primary Mastery Specialist teachers across the region who will each work with six schools, giving us 48 schools receiving
intensive training. For further information, see our upcoming article on our website. Schools wishing to know more should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“There can now be no doubt in anyone’s mind that Ofsted is fully supportive of schools changing the way they teach maths, to reflect a mastery approach. We are very grateful to Jane Jones for spelling out so clearly how the mastery approach is completely consistent with the aims of the new maths National Curriculum, and for the immensely helpful advice she gave to headteachers preparing for Ofsted inspections. We hope this will give schools more confidence to take a mastery approach to maths teaching, which, evidence suggests, helps all pupils to improve their understanding of maths. “

PRIMARY MASTERY TEACHING FOR MASTERY WORK GROUPS – Information and Application (2017-18)
In 2017-2018, all Maths Hubs will be running primary mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups led by Mastery Specialists. Each Maths Hub is now seeking to recruit schools for up to eight Work Groups, each involving six or seven schools (i.e. up to 56 schools per Maths Hub). The attached document gives information about the Work Groups and how schools can apply to be involved. The closing date for application is Friday, 16th June.
And now teaching for Mastery arrives in our secondary schools!
During the first years of the Solent Maths Hub, much of our work was focused on Primary Mastery. This year, we are developing this work with Secondary colleagues.
We have appointed four Teaching for Mastery specialist teachers in the region:
Amber Hodge – Trafalgar School (Salterns Academy Trust) – Portsmouth
Amy Fuller – The Priory School (Bohunt Academy Trust) – Portsmouth/Hampshire
Ceri Reece – Crestwood School – Eastleigh/Hampshire
Dan Marshall – King Richard School, Portsmouth
After they have undergone national training, they will be working with schools across the region in intensive Teacher Research Groups later in the academic year.
