Teaching for Mastery Primary – Embedding

Collaborative professional development to support schools in their second year of teaching for mastery. 

The strategic goal of the Teaching for Mastery Programme for primary schools is to establish teaching for mastery approaches so that all pupils develop deep knowledge, understanding and confidence. Those who have worked on establishing teaching for mastery in a Development Work Group become part of an Embedding Work Group in their second year, focusing on systems and culture to support teaching for mastery as well as support for school leadership and subject leadership.

Who can take part?

This is for schools who have previously participated in a Development Work Group. All must show a strong commitment for embedding teaching for mastery approaches, and at least the lead teacher from the Development Work Group must have already started using mastery approaches. The school leadership team including the headteacher must also be involved, to ensure there is a whole school commitment.

What is involved?

Work Groups in this project will support schools to scale up teaching for mastery approaches from individual teachers’ classrooms, ensuring whole-school practices are consistently adopted. There are six workshops across the year, plus support from a Mastery Specialist.

What will you learn?

Participants and their schools will:

  • enhance their mathematical subject knowledge, emphasising key areas of maths
  • cultivate a deep understanding of the principles and pedagogies of mastery
  • understand the school-wide structures which enable staff to develop mastery approaches
  • develop the ability to plan, teach and reflect on lessons with a mastery approach
  • establish a set of principles, policies, practices and systems which embody a teaching for mastery approach.

What is the cost?

The Primary Teaching for Mastery – Embedding project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
