The National Maths Hubs Programme, led by the NCETM, has developed a ‘Teaching for Mastery’ approach, drawing on international research, including that from Shanghai. 
Ofsted are one of the Strategic Advisers to the Maths Hubs Network and here's a message from Sean Harford, HMI National Director Education, given to our new Cohort 4 Specialists during their launch event this can be read in conjunction with the following extract from Ofsted's School inspection handbook.
Here's a short video and podcast detailing some of the benefits for your school.

They have implemented TfM into their own practice and across their school, with support from SLT and their designated TfM Lead. They are supported to have the skills to  facilitate  Teacher Research Groups (TRG) with other schools across the region.
