Although the participation involves two teachers attending events outside of the school it is expected that these two teachers lead development across the whole school.
West Yorkshire Maths Hub is now seeking to recruit schools for up to 12 Work Groups, each involving six or seven schools.
Participating in the Work Group will provide the following benefits
to participant schools:
High quality support for teacher professional development for the lead teachers, facilitated by the Mastery Specialist
Support for the head teacher in addressing leadership issues related to teaching for mastery from the Mastery Specialist and the Maths Hub’s leadership
Opportunity to work closely with other schools also developing teaching for mastery
No charge for participation and a grant of £1000 to help subsidise teacher release time
Matched funding of £2000 to support the school in buying text books
Schools chosen to participate in the Work Group commit to the following expectations:
The lead teachers will participate in the half-termly, cross-school Work Group meetings with the Mastery Specialist (half-days) and complete gap tasks.
The lead teachers will receive a minimum of 10 (combined) days release time for development work including the above meetings
The head teacher will meet with the Mastery Specialist and the Maths Hub’s leadership as well as working with the other Work Group school head teachers
The school will introduce teaching for mastery approaches across the school and establish TRG professional development models to support teacher development
The school will provide any reports required by the Maths Hub and participate in any evaluation processes required
The school will continue to network with the schools in the work group for the year 2018-19
