    Developing Working Partnerships for SEND and Mathematics

 

 

    • Overview

    • This programme involves mainstream and special schools working together to improve SEND provision in maths. Each Work Group Network will be formed from at least one special school working with a group of mainstream schools, either primary, secondary or both, and will focus on a content area or theme – for example understanding and using vocabulary, deeper questioning etc – that is relevant to all students. Participants will explore ways to encourage reasoning and the use of manipulatives, providing a different approach to working with students with SEND across mainstream and special schools. The pedagogy introduced, and any resources trialled, would support the principles of teaching for mastery.
    •  

      Who is this for?

    • All School/Subject Leaders,  Class Teachers, Learning Mentors, HLTA’s and TA’s of mathematics at EYFS, primary, secondary, Post 16 and special schools. Ideally teachers should have good subject knowledge and at least two years’ experience in the classroom. This Work Group Network would also be suitable for a SENCo in mainstream schools with a strong background in mathematics.

Supporting Core Maths

  • Published in Post 16

 

Supporting Core Maths

 

Overview

This Work Group consists of direct partnership working between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP). The success of Core Maths depends in part on the growth of the pool of teachers, schools and colleges with the necessary expertise, experience and enthusiasm to teach it. This project will contribute to the wider national effort to grow that pool and embed Core Maths confidence and culture within school and college maths departments.

 

    • Participants will understand the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths through contextualised problem-solving, appreciate the different Core Maths qualifications available and be able to choose the course appropriate for their students.
    • Through collaboration and experimentation, participants will develop improved teaching approaches that fit the open-ended problem-solving skills students need to develop and also share these with departmental colleagues.
  • Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to other teaching.

Students in participant schools and colleges will take and succeed at Core Maths in increasing numbers.
