Overview

Mastery Readiness is the programme that precedes the Teacher Research Groups (TRGs) with the Mastery Specialists. Beginning in the Autumn Term 2019 and continuing through the academic year, each Maths Hub will accept cohorts of six or seven schools to engage in the following activities which will include:

Each school identifying two teachers including the maths lead to support developments within their school

Attend up to two local training events per term, represented by the subject leader (SL) and one other teacher. The headteacher should attend on the first day and as many subsequent days as possible. The training would include an introduction to mastery, how to prepare a school to be ready to implement teaching for mastery, initial steps, both in leadership and in classroom teaching, and strategies to overcome potential barriers.

Receive two half-day school visits, per term, from the lead to identify specific school issues, support the development of a long-term action plan, and bespoke support in developing mastery readiness.

Schools that have been successful in beginning to implement strategies and have shown commitment to the programme which lay the foundations for teaching for mastery will be considered to become part of the main Teaching for Mastery Work Groups beginning in the Autumn Term 2020.

Participating in the Mastery Readiness programme will provide the following benefits to participant schools: Free, high quality support for teacher professional development for the lead teachers, facilitated by the Mastery Readiness Lead, Support for the head teacher in addressing leadership issues related to mathematics and contributing to raising standards, Support and resources to develop the school’s readiness to engage with a mastery approach to teaching mathematics and the Opportunity to work closely with other schools also developing mastery readiness

The programme works with schools on 5 ideas of Mastery Readiness:

Vision and Shared Culture

Subject Expertise

Mathematical Mindset

Systems

Arithmetic Proficiency

There are workgroups based on all of these which the maths subject leader and another teacher attend (HTs on the first session) and they are followed up by five school visits by the Mastery Lead to help put in place an action plan and work on how to deliver this.
