Your input is exactly what we need. -we have literally turned our Maths thinking upside down! I am so excited about the developments I can see taking place in Maths- you have really inspired us! ' C Hawkins, Head Teacher, St Peters Primary, Edgmond, Shropshire

 

 
'Excellent - confidence-building, fluent and professional delivery. This training really took the pressure off coverage and 'box ticking' and helped me re-focus on a slower, deeper, more creative and child-led style of learning. Lots of practical resources and idea. Thank you! ‘ R. Mortishire- Smith, Maths Subject Leader, Cheshire

 

Outstanding Leadership in Primary Maths

Improving confidence, subject knowledge and pedagogy in mathematics to support and develop exceptional leadership

 

Four half-day training sessions to support Primary Maths Leaders in bringing about significant positive change to maths teaching across the whole school in-line with the expectations of the new Primary Curriculum

 

Session 1- ‘Mindset and Maths’: Learn how essential a ‘Growth Mindset’ is to all learning and perhaps especially important in maths. This session will look at how we can transform the beliefs of both our staff and our children and create environments where everyone can succeed. This session will also introduce the subject of ‘Mastery’ in maths.

 

Sessions 2 and 3 – ‘Number Sense: The Essential Foundation of Calculation’: 

What is ‘Number Sense’ and why is having it so crucial to sustained progress in maths in every key stage? This session will look at the key ‘tools’ we need to arm every learner with to ensure sustained progress across the whole of their primary education. As leaders, our role is to focus upon creating consistent journeys from the EYFS to Year 6 which encourage all teachers and learners to actively build upon what has gone before. Effective questioning and the role of the adult (including TAs) will feature prominently in this session 

 

Sessions 4 – ‘Embedding all Maths Learning in Engaging Problem Solving’: This session will look at the importance of creating strong, meaningful links between different areas of maths and maths and the real world (Maths Across the Curriculum). As leaders, we can demonstrate how to build a curriculum which focuses upon connections and means there is far less to learn and therefore far less to teach. This fully supports the ‘Mastery’ approach where going ’deeper for longer’ promotes successful learning at every stage.
