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. 

These Work Groups are being seen as a permanent form of support for maths in primary schools where, through collaborative practices, schools can focus on the continued improvement, consistency and refinement of a teaching for mastery approach.

Schools participating will have previously taken part in a Development Work Group and then a Embedding Work Group.

Participants and their schools will:

  • enhance their mathematical subject knowledge, emphasising key areas of maths

  • learn how to establish an effective collaborative planning culture

  • plan, teach and reflect collaboratively to provide a coherent mastery curriculum

  • continue to refine school structures and systems to embed and sustain mastery

  • continue to ensure a sustainable model for collaborative planning and ongoing specialist subject knowledge development for all teachers.

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