Participating in a Maths Hub Primary Mastery Readiness Work Group
In 2020/21, all Maths Hubs will be running primary mathematics Mastery Readiness Work Groups led by Mastery Readiness Leads. 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.
Each Work Group will be led by one of the Maths Hub’s Mastery Readiness Leads and involve up to eight primary schools. During the year, they will work closely together to develop subject and pedagogical knowledge as well as supporting teaching, learning and leadership of mathematics across the school by looking at the Five Big Ideas of Mastery Readiness to lay the foundations to developing teaching for mastery in an effective and sustainable manner.
Following the first year the schools are expected to then continue being part of the Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Work Group led by a Mastery Specialist. Beyond that year, there will be opportunities to continue embedding a teaching for mastery approach with the support of a specialist and other schools.
Who can apply?
Mastery Readiness is designed for schools who are not yet in a position to develop teaching for mastery but want to in the future. The Work Groups are intended for schools in the following circumstances:
