Event description
The purpose of the programmes in this project is to support primary teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics.

About this Event

What is involved

The programme is based on four core primary modules:

• Number sense

• Additive reasoning

• Multiplicative reasoning

• Fractions

Teachers will enhance their maths subject knowledge with an emphasis on the key structures in each mathematical area listed above. Time will be spent exploring the key elements that form number sense, including precise language, structures and representations. Teachers will be expected to review their own practice as a result of the sessions and make adaptations to their teaching.

Who can apply?

This Work Group is designed for teachers who would like to further develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. They will be particularly relevant for NQTs/RQTs, teachers that have moved phases or teachers that have not received maths-specific training.

What is the cost?

There is no cost for schools. Maths Hub professional development is funded through the DfE


It has long been recognised that maths teaching is enhanced when the teachers are confident about the subject matter. This Work Group aims to increase maths subject and pedagogical knowledge leading to increased teacher confidence and more effective maths teaching.


Participants will be expected to attend all the sessions and complete intersessional tasks.

Covid Recovery

The risk of cross contamination between schools is too high for us to consider face-to-face Work Groups. Therefore, all Work Groups will take place online this year.

Who is leading the Group?

Sally Prosser

Sally is Maths Lead at Queen Emma Primary School in Cambridge where she is leading the development of mastery in maths within her school.
