NOW RECRUITING (for September 2022) - MASTERING NUMBER Supporting pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

This project aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1 to support success in the future.

Who can take part?

Lead participants from Work Group schools will be three teachers, one each from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, with some support given to subject leaders and headteachers.

 

What is the cost?

The Mastering Number project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is FREE to participating schools.

Listen to Debbie Morgan explain how to use a Rekenrek, one of the key aspects of the programme:

NOW RECRUITING (for September 2022) - Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (Early Years Teachers)

These programmes are designed for individuals who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths to three to five years olds. This may be particularly relevant for NQTs, teachers that have moved phases, or teachers that have not received maths-specific training.

School Development Lead Programme

This project aims to support mathematics leads whose role is to lead change in a school or group of schools other than their own. The Cheshire and Wirral Maths Hub is looking to recruit two teachers onto this programme.

Who can take part?

The programme is for teachers leading change in a school or group of schools other than their own, and will benefit those who have previous experience of developing leadership capacity in schools/groups of schools or who are new to the role.

What is involved?

It will provide a regional support programme through a series of three days of workshops (face-to-face and online), practice development activities, and an online community. The face-to-face workshops will run regionally across England.

Participants undertake to plan, lead and evaluate a school development initiative for a school or group of schools and to record their planning, evaluation and reflection in an Accreditation Evidence Document.

Successful completion of the programme and satisfactory completion of all tasks and related paperwork will result in the participant being accredited as an NCETM Accredited School Development Lead.

 

The School Development Lead Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participants and their schools. Funding covers provision of the three face-to-face days. Travel costs will also be funded.
