Primary Sustaining Programme

The Primary Sustaining Programme is a  project designed to support schools making teaching for mastery 'business as usual'. This stage of the Teaching for Mastery Programme is the 'Refinement phase'.

This 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. It brings together schools across the Maths Hubs Network that are working on continued development to sustain their mastery approach to maths.

Sustaining Work Groups are a permanent form of support where schools can focus on continued improvement, consistency and refinement of teaching for mastery. Teachers, maths leads and headteachers are all involved, striving to support teachers, and looking at collaborative planning and subject knowledge development.


What will you learn?

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

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

  • You and your school 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 - Sustaining project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
