Mastery and the Ofsted Framework – Secondary
For middle and senior leaders
The new Ofsted inspection framework placed an increased emphasis on schools to ensure they are developing and delivering a curriculum that works best for their students. With many schools on paths towards a mastery approach, leaders may be thinking about how the new framework might change their plans. This course will help leaders to understand how mastery fits in with the framework, as well as giving guidance around areas such as:
• What to look for in the maths classroom
• What differentiation in maths might look like
• How to develop subject knowledge of your staff
• How to help with teacher workload
Reasoning & Problem Solving – KS3/KS4
Reasoning and problem solving have been high on the agenda since the most recent reform of GCSE in 2017. This very practical course examines how to develop these skills over the five years of secondary school, looking at the journey in reasoning from giving explanations through to developing formal proof, and how to support students at all levels of attainment to access and succeed in high-value problem solving questions. You will leave the session with ideas and strategies to implement from the very next day.

Covering many areas of the curriculum, the session focuses on the underlying structures behind the Mathematics and how to plan for these in a practical and accessible way.
