If you would like to find out more about developing a Teaching for Mastery approach in your school or setting please email Geraldine, our Teaching for Mastery Administrator at geraldinepearce@clf.uk.
 
 
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, this can be read in conjunction with the following extract from Ofsted's School inspection handbook.
 
Teaching for mastery? But what will Ofsted say?

Over a short series of one-minute videos, Debbie Morgan, our Director for Primary, talks to Emma Gregory, a senior Ofsted inspector, about teaching for mastery.

   
Mastery Specialists
 
These are classroom teachers who receive national training to increase their knowledge and hold a deep understanding of teaching for mastery. They have implemented this into their own practice and across their school, with support from SLT and their designated Assistant Maths Hub Lead. They are supported to have the skills to  facilitate  Teacher Research Groups (TRG) with other schools across the region.
