Leading Teaching for Mastery

“A commitment that ALL pupils can and will achieve in mathematics by providing opportunities for all pupils to develop the depth and rigour they need to make secure and sustained progress over time”

There’s been a great deal around Primary Mastery over the last 2 years and we have been piloting for one year a Teaching for Understanding (Mastery) scheme of learning for the Secondary classroom.

15 schools have been involved in writing and developing the Teaching for Understanding scheme for year 7 and year 8 and this is currently being developed into year 9. This work was preceded by:

  • The Better Maths conference
  • Senior leadership training
  • HoD training
  • Maths teacher training

The scheme of learning focuses heavily on the concrete/pictorial/abstract approach to teaching mathematics inspired by the maths hubs exchanges with the Chinese teachers. The themes have been written collaboratively by maths directors, lead teachers and outstanding teachers from across Outwood Grange Academies Trust.


Leading Teaching for Mastery will be a programme preparing maths leads to launch teaching for understanding in their schools. There will be three full days and optional twilights and interim exercises to complete covering:

  • Introduction to Mastery @ KS3
  • Department planning
  • Teacher training and development
At the end of the programme, maths leads will be able to take the fully resourced two year (at the moment) scheme of learning with them for delivery in their own schools.

Dates & Booking Form:

  • Tuesday 7th February 2017
