Primary Mastery Programme [OLD]

The Primary Teaching for Mastery Programme is one of the principle areas of work of the Maths Hubs. This programme has run since 2015. Each year a new cohort of teachers in each Maths Hub area are trained to become " Teaching for Mastery Specialists" in their own classrooms through the NCETM programme, and in succeeding years they work with a group of schools to support the similar development of practice in partner schools. The programme is funded for the Specialists and also for the participating work group schools. By summer 2019, more than 5,000 schools have participated in the Teaching for Mastery Programme. Hundreds of thousands of children are now benefiting from a changed experience of maths learning at school. The programme is open to all state-funded schools in England.
