Primary Embedding Programme

The Primary Embedding Programme is a project designed to support schools in their second year of Teaching for Mastery. This stage of the Teaching for Mastery Programme is the 'Building phase'.











Those who have worked on establishing teaching for mastery in a Development Work Group become part of an Embedding Work Group in their second year, focusing on systems and culture to support teaching for mastery as well as support for school leadership and subject leadership. After this, schools will work in Sustaining stage of the Teaching for Mastery Programme.

What is involved?

Work Groups in this project will support schools to scale up teaching for mastery approaches from individual teachers’ classrooms, ensuring whole-school practices are consistently adopted. There are six workshops across the year, plus support from a Mastery Specialist.

What will you learn?

  • You will enhance your mathematical subject knowledge, emphasising key areas of maths

  • You will plan, teach and reflect on lessons with a mastery approach

  • Your school leaders will understand the school-wide structures which enable staff to develop mastery approaches

  • You and your school leaders will establish a set of principles, policies, practices and systems which embody a teaching for mastery approach

The Primary Teaching for Mastery - Embedding project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools
