Maths Package

Our Maths Package provides a life-line to maths teachers who are struggling to juggle the essential elements of the National Maths Curriculum and to school leaders aiming to improve the effectiveness of their school’s maths provision.

Our Maths Teaching and Leading Maths Programmes aim to secure effective maths provision within individual classrooms and across whole schools. The Maths Teaching Programme equips Maths teachers with secure subject knowledge and a core understanding of maths progression along with tried and tested strategies for planning and delivering maths lessons to ensure all pupils achieve fluency and are able to solve problems and reason mathematically to the best of their abilities. Our Leading Maths Programme offers support to those responsible for leading maths, providing guidance on everything from curriculum and task design to whole-school systems of maths planning and assessment.

Our Maths Fluency and Maths Reasoning and Problem Solving Programmes provide more specific guidance on two of the most important and troubling areas of maths provision. Without secure basic numeracy skills, pupils will struggle to cope with even simple maths tasks; our Maths Fluency Programme examines the effectiveness of a range of current approaches to securing basic maths fluency and explores how to overcome barriers to pupils’ understanding. Our Maths Reasoning and Problem Solving Programme provides guidance to maths teachers and leaders on two fronts: how to effectively build in reasoning and problem solving at every stage of maths learning and how to equip pupils with successful strategies.

Leading Maths Programme

5 x half-day sessions

Aimed at: Maths Subject Leaders at KS1 and KS2

This course aims to provide support to maths leaders to ensure they are able to provide the best advice in their schools on maths pedagogy and provision. As well as providing regular opportunities for peer-to-peer support, the course will pull together the key elements of all courses in the maths package: teaching pedagogy, maths basic skills, maths reasoning and problem solving and greater depth maths. The course also provides support and guidance to maths leaders in curriculum development, progress tracking and resource management.

Maths Fluency Programme

1 x full-day core training, 1 x in-school research task and 1 x half-day sharing event

Aimed at: Experienced Maths teachers and Maths Leaders at KS1 and KS2

It is generally accepted that accuracy and speed are crucial for developing basic maths fluency, but how are these successfully learned by pupils? What makes some children grasp basic number sense concepts more rapidly than others? This programme takes a research-oriented approach to explore successful maths fluency strategies so that they can be developed explicitly in all children to improve pupils’ achievement in maths across a whole school or within a single phase or year group.

PLEASE NOTE:
The programme will run in conjunction with our Maths Fluency Research Project
