Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Work Groups

This year we have 8 Primary Mastery Specialists who are leading Teacher Research Groups each containing on average 6 schools and we have 5 Specialists who are in the first year of the programme. (Teaching for Mastery)

Primary Teaching for Mastery Embedding Work Groups

A project designed to support schools in their second year of teaching for mastery.
Please note that the Embedding Work Groups are a continuation of previous years' Development Work Groups.

Primary Teaching for Mastery Sustaining Work Groups

New for 2020/21 this Work Group builds on the work carried out in previous teaching for mastery Work Groups and this year it will particularly focus on curriculum recovery.  This Work Group is for all primary schools who have previously been involved in teaching for mastery via a Development or Embedding Work Group, or who are Mastery Specialist schools.  

Mastery Readiness

The Mastery Readiness Programme is for primary schools that want to adopt Teaching for Mastery in maths, but would benefit from a staged approach.
