The Sutton Trust report ‘What Makes Great Teaching’ identifies teachers’ content knowledge, including their ability to understand how students think about a subject and identify common misconceptions, as one of the two factors with the strongest evidence of improving pupil attainment. This course aims to develop exactly this kind of knowledge.

Each session will look at a different aspect of number and calculation (addition, subtraction, multiplication & division, fractions). Where relevant we will reference the  National Curriculum and mastery approaches to teaching maths, though our primary aim is to develop great teaching and learning in calculation regardless of the specific curriculum being taught.

For greatest impact in KS1, this programme would be best for a pair of teachers to attend at reduced cost, although this year we will accept a single teacher from a school.

The cost includes:
2 full days and 2 half days of CPD; during the final day we will plan for maths development back in school the following year.
Access to all the resources used on the programme which should support further professional development in school.
Hopefully two teachers returning to school full of ideas, knowledge and enthusiasm!

Dates for the programme are as follows:

  • Wednesday 9th October 2019 (full, day, 9.00am – 4.00pm)
  • Wednesday 6th November 2019 (half day, 1.15 – 4.15pm)
  • Wednesday 15th January 2020 (full, day, 9.00am – 4.00pm)
  • Wednesday 25th March 2020 (half day, 1.15pm – 4.15pm)

Course feedback:

“Course has been inspirational and hugely developed my teaching in numeracy.”
