Primary Teaching for Mastery Re-Engagement Events

This is the seventh year that the national Maths Hub network has been supporting schools to develop, embed and sustain mastery approaches to mathematics. 

Over these seven years, the programme has evolved to now offer bespoke support to schools at any point in their mastery journey – no matter when they last participated in a Teaching for Mastery Work Group.  Here at East Midlands South Math Hub, we are currently looking to re-connect with schools in our region through our fully-funded 2023/24 Sustaining Work Groups.


Re-engagement events


Perhaps a lot has changed in your school over the last few years.  For example, a high turnover in staff, specifically your mathematics subject leader.  Or perhaps now is just the right time to refocus on mastery principles and reflect on, and refine, pedagogy with the support of other schools and a Primary Mastery Specialist.


For schools that are interested in re-joining the programme, we are hosting two ‘open door’ events, led by our Headteacher Advocates.  They are inviting you to discuss their continuing journey with Teaching for Mastery and ongoing involvement with Maths Hub Work Groups.  There will be an opportunity to observe and talk about a Mastering Number Lesson and also time to answer any of your questions regarding re-engagement.  If you’d like to know more, our Headteacher advocates have talked on video about these issues, which are available by following this link- Headteacher Advocates

Who can attend?


These sessions are aimed at the Headteacher or Maths Lead of schools that have once participated in the Primary Teaching for Mastery programme at the Developing phase.  Your setting has a strong commitment to continually refine a whole school mastery approach, but it might have been some time since you last engaged with an East Midlands South Work Group.  If unsure about your school’s eligibility to attend one of these sessions, please contact the Maths Hub.

We hope this sounds like an exciting opportunity to re-connect with EMS Maths Hub and to learn more about our Teaching for Mastery Sustaining Work Groups.  If you would like more general information about the programme before attending one of the above, please visit the NCETM website and more specific, regional information can be found on by following the link below:
