    Focus: Fluency: Securing automaticity for learners
    Success in mathematics is hinged on the fundamental skills in the mastery of basic facts attributed to the four computational
    elements of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. For many children, flash cards, interleaving and timed tests do not
    result in known facts but mathematics anxiety. It is the attention afforded to strategies through patterning and structural
    relationships, which lead to a deeper confidence, number sense and therefore, fluency.
    This programme will explore factual mastery through a focus on the foundational followed by the derived facts. There will be
    opportunities for assessment through observation and pupil interviews resulting in gaps analysis to support responsive teaching.
    We will explore the meaning of Mental Agility through the three elements: Recall, Calculation and Strategy such that single
    questions can be applied to evidence depth of fluency.
    This work group will run over six half day sessions at Tanners Brook Primary School in Southampton and participants must attend
    all sessions.

    he stated aims of the KS4 Programme of Study are that, through working on the content, students should develop mathematical fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving. While mathematical thinking is a key feature of all of these, the focus of this Work Group is to support teachers in developing their understanding of mathematical thinking as it relates to problem-solving and reasoning, using practical task types to explore what it means for students to get better at mathematical thinking and what this looks like in the classroom. 

    The Work Group will: 

    • Offer teachers support so that they are better equipped to help all students develop their mathematical thinking, ultimately preparing them for the challenges of the GCSE and beyond 
    • Support teachers in understanding and using participation in a Work Group as the basis of collaborative continued professional development for themselves and within their department. 

    Who can take part? 

    This is for teachers of KS4 who want to further develop their understanding of developing mathematical thinking, and practical classroom strategies to explore these ideas. Participants are encouraged to lead developments from the Work Group in their own department and so should have the opportunity to do this effectively.  

    Departments that have already engaged with the Work Group have the opportunity to continue with the Work Group structure in order to explore further and think more deeply about supporting mathematical thinking in the classroom by participating in a second ‘deepening’ year. 

    PLEASE NOTE THAT BOOKINGS ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY. 

    ALL SESSIONS WILL TAKE PLACE ONLINE BETWEEN 3:30 - 5:30PM. 
    DETAILS FOR ALL SESSIONS WILL BE SENT VIA EMAIL.

    The gap may have widened, but the link between family and income and educational
    attainment can be broken.
    - What are the challenges faced by schools around pupil premium?
    - What does the research evidence suggest is most likely to address the attainment gap?
    - How can the research evidence be mobilised in schools by teachers and leaders?
    HISP Research School are proud to offer an evidence deep dive. Led by Marc Rowland, this
    workshop will help delegates to explore the challenges their pupils are facing as a result
    of socio-economic disadvantage and what is within our gift to address this. It will draw
    heavily from the EEF tiered approach to tackling educational disadvantage and provide
    colleagues with the opportunity to review their own pupil premium strategy.
    The day will be most appropriate for pupil premium lead in primary and secondary schools.

    This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.  This Work Group will focus on number patterns and structures in early years, exploring the developmental trajectory for learning in counting and cardinality.  A key focus will be on improving the participants’ ability to “do” mathematics but also to ensure they have the appropriate pedagogical knowledge to teach their children well. 

    Pupils will:

    • Have increased opportunities to explore concepts at a developmentally appropriate level
    • Be able to communicate their maths and mathematical thinking through graphical representations and/or appropriate language
    • Demonstrate a positive attitude towards maths, being willing to have a go, persevere, and share their mathematical ideas

    These networks are free to all teachers and schools involved.


    Feedback from participants last year: 

    ‘I understand so much more about subitising and what it is - more than the basic knowledge and ideas I had. And more importantly, how to consider the development of language and strategies to develop this with the children.’ 

    ‘I feel that it has changed the way I thought about number and counting and even made me change the language I use with my son who is 20 months old.’ 

    What is involved:

    There will be 4 full day sessions throughout the year.  This group will be held in 2 locations.  One in the Portsmouth area and one in the Southampton area.

    Please contact info@solentmathshub.org.uk if you would like to speak to a member of our team for more information.

    he stated aims of the KS4 Programme of Study are that, through working on the content, students should develop mathematical fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving. While mathematical thinking is a key feature of all of these, the focus of this Work Group is to support teachers in developing their understanding of mathematical thinking as it relates to problem-solving and reasoning, using practical task types to explore what it means for students to get better at mathematical thinking and what this looks like in the classroom. 

    The Work Group will: 

    • Offer teachers support so that they are better equipped to help all students develop their mathematical thinking, ultimately preparing them for the challenges of the GCSE and beyond 
    • Support teachers in understanding and using participation in a Work Group as the basis of collaborative continued professional development for themselves and within their department. 

    Who can take part? 

    This is for teachers of KS4 who want to further develop their understanding of developing mathematical thinking, and practical classroom strategies to explore these ideas. Participants are encouraged to lead developments from the Work Group in their own department and so should have the opportunity to do this effectively.  

    Departments that have already engaged with the Work Group have the opportunity to continue with the Work Group structure in order to explore further and think more deeply about supporting mathematical thinking in the classroom by participating in a second ‘deepening’ year.

    Developing questioning for challenge that demands greater proof through language construction and variation. For those
    wanting to evidence GDS without creating lots of tasks! These workshops go deep through a focus on questioning and language.
    These workshops begin with a focus on the two fundamental types of stem sentence: the generalised and the structural. From
    these, reasoning structures will be developed to support teacher planning that secures challenge and depth, making the planning
    for and assessment of GDS more straightforward and discernible.

    Focus: Fluency: Securing automaticity for learners
    Success in mathematics is hinged on the fundamental skills in the mastery of basic facts attributed to the four computational
    elements of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. For many children, flash cards, interleaving and timed tests do not
    result in known facts but mathematics anxiety. It is the attention afforded to strategies through patterning and structural
    relationships, which lead to a deeper confidence, number sense and therefore, fluency.
    This programme will explore factual mastery through a focus on the foundational followed by the derived facts. There will be
    opportunities for assessment through observation and pupil interviews resulting in gaps analysis to support responsive teaching.
    We will explore the meaning of Mental Agility through the three elements: Recall, Calculation and Strategy such that single
    questions can be applied to evidence depth of fluency.
    This work group will run over six half day sessions at Tanners Brook Primary School in Southampton and participants must attend

    Our Research School Network programmes usually span multiple days, involve rigorous analysis of current practice and an extended implementation process. This year, for the first time, we have decided to offer a lighter touch online course for those who are either new to the EEF or just wish to build their personal knowledge of using evidence without necessarily committing to a major aspect of school improvement. The course is aimed at middle and senior leaders who are relatively new to the EEF and teachers who want to develop their knowledge of school improvement.

    The programme will be delivered through six 1.5-hour modules facilitated live by our South West Research School team.

    The Modules:

    Module 1 (Weds 25th Jan 15:30 – 17:00): Evidence-informed decisions to enhance the quality of teaching
    Module 2 (Mon 20th Feb 15:30 – 17:00): Using diagnostic assessment to monitor pupils’ learning

    Developing questioning for challenge that demands greater proof through language construction and variation. For those
    wanting to evidence GDS without creating lots of tasks! These workshops go deep through a focus on questioning and language.
    These workshops begin with a focus on the two fundamental types of stem sentence: the generalised and the structural. From
    these, reasoning structures will be developed to support teacher planning that secures challenge and depth, making the planning
    for and assessment of GDS more straightforward and discernible.

    Focus: Fluency: Securing automaticity for learners
    Success in mathematics is hinged on the fundamental skills in the mastery of basic facts attributed to the four computational
    elements of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. For many children, flash cards, interleaving and timed tests do not
    result in known facts but mathematics anxiety. It is the attention afforded to strategies through patterning and structural
    relationships, which lead to a deeper confidence, number sense and therefore, fluency.
    This programme will explore factual mastery through a focus on the foundational followed by the derived facts. There will be
    opportunities for assessment through observation and pupil interviews resulting in gaps analysis to support responsive teaching.
    We will explore the meaning of Mental Agility through the three elements: Recall, Calculation and Strategy such that single
    questions can be applied to evidence depth of fluency.
    This work group will run over six half day sessions at Tanners Brook Primary School in Southampton and participants must attend
    all sessions.

    This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.  This Work Group will focus on number patterns and structures in early years, exploring the developmental trajectory for learning in counting and cardinality.  A key focus will be on improving the participants’ ability to “do” mathematics but also to ensure they have the appropriate pedagogical knowledge to teach their children well. 

    Pupils will:

    • Have increased opportunities to explore concepts at a developmentally appropriate level
    • Be able to communicate their maths and mathematical thinking through graphical representations and/or appropriate language
    • Demonstrate a positive attitude towards maths, being willing to have a go, persevere, and share their mathematical ideas

    These networks are free to all teachers and schools involved.


    Feedback from participants last year: 

    ‘I understand so much more about subitising and what it is - more than the basic knowledge and ideas I had. And more importantly, how to consider the development of language and strategies to develop this with the children.’ 

    ‘I feel that it has changed the way I thought about number and counting and even made me change the language I use with my son who is 20 months old.’ 

    What is involved:

    There will be 4 full day sessions throughout the year.  This group will be held in 2 locations.  One in the Portsmouth area and one in the Southampton area.

    Please contact info@solentmathshub.org.uk if you would like to speak to a member of our team for more information.

    he stated aims of the KS4 Programme of Study are that, through working on the content, students should develop mathematical fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving. While mathematical thinking is a key feature of all of these, the focus of this Work Group is to support teachers in developing their understanding of mathematical thinking as it relates to problem-solving and reasoning, using practical task types to explore what it means for students to get better at mathematical thinking and what this looks like in the classroom. 

    The Work Group will: 

    • Offer teachers support so that they are better equipped to help all students develop their mathematical thinking, ultimately preparing them for the challenges of the GCSE and beyond 
    • Support teachers in understanding and using participation in a Work Group as the basis of collaborative continued professional development for themselves and within their department. 

    Who can take part? 

    This is for teachers of KS4 who want to further develop their understanding of developing mathematical thinking, and practical classroom strategies to explore these ideas. Participants are encouraged to lead developments from the Work Group in their own department and so should have the opportunity to do this effectively.  

    Departments that have already engaged with the Work Group have the opportunity to continue with the Work Group structure in order to explore further and think more deeply about supporting mathematical thinking in the classroom by participating in a second ‘deepening’ year. 

    PLEASE NOTE THAT BOOKINGS ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY. 

    ALL SESSIONS WILL TAKE PLACE ONLINE BETWEEN 3:30 - 5:30PM.

    The Mastery Readiness Programme is for primary schools that want to adopt teaching for mastery in maths, but would benefit from a staged approach.

    Schools that are successful in implementing sustained and meaningful change through teaching for mastery have key foundations already in place. 

    These key foundations include:

    • Shared vision and culture around the importance of maths

    • A belief that every child can achieve highly in maths

    • A positive mindset towards maths amongst all staff

    • Good maths subject knowledge amongst teachers and TAs

    • Systems that maximise learning, such as timetabling, intervention, curriculum and pedagogical approaches

    • Teaching of arithmetical proficiency for all children, to support mathematical fluency by reducing cognitive load

    • Ongoing staff development, which is valued by all staff and senior leaders.

    Our Research School Network programmes usually span multiple days, involve rigorous analysis of current practice and an extended implementation process. This year, for the first time, we have decided to offer a lighter touch online course for those who are either new to the EEF or just wish to build their personal knowledge of using evidence without necessarily committing to a major aspect of school improvement. The course is aimed at middle and senior leaders who are relatively new to the EEF and teachers who want to develop their knowledge of school improvement.

    The programme will be delivered through six 1.5-hour modules facilitated live by our South West Research School team.

    The Modules:

    Module 1 (Weds 25th Jan 15:30 – 17:00): Evidence-informed decisions to enhance the quality of teaching
    Module 2 (Mon 20th Feb 15:30 – 17:00): Using diagnostic assessment to monitor pupils’ learning
    Module 3 (Mon 20th March 15:30 – 17:00): High-quality teaching: some ?‘best bets’.
    Module 4 (Weds 19th April 15:30 – 17:00): Using evidence to choose interventions & targeted approaches.
    Module 5 (Mon 15th May 15:30 – 17:00): How evidence can inform our ?‘wider strategies’
    Module 6 (Weds 14th June 15:30 – 17:00): taking an evidence-informed approach to implementation.

    he stated aims of the KS4 Programme of Study are that, through working on the content, students should develop mathematical fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving. While mathematical thinking is a key feature of all of these, the focus of this Work Group is to support teachers in developing their understanding of mathematical thinking as it relates to problem-solving and reasoning, using practical task types to explore what it means for students to get better at mathematical thinking and what this looks like in the classroom. 

    The Work Group will: 

    • Offer teachers support so that they are better equipped to help all students develop their mathematical thinking, ultimately preparing them for the challenges of the GCSE and beyond 
    • Support teachers in understanding and using participation in a Work Group as the basis of collaborative continued professional development for themselves and within their department. 

    Who can take part? 

    This is for teachers of KS4 who want to further develop their understanding of developing mathematical thinking, and practical classroom strategies to explore these ideas. Participants are encouraged to lead developments from the Work Group in their own department and so should have the opportunity to do this effectively.  

    Departments that have already engaged with the Work Group have the opportunity to continue with the Work Group structure in order to explore further and think more deeply about supporting mathematical thinking in the classroom by participating in a second ‘deepening’ year. 

    PLEASE NOTE THAT BOOKINGS ARE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY. 

    ALL SESSIONS WILL TAKE PLACE ONLINE BETWEEN 3:30 - 5:30PM. 
    DETAILS FOR ALL SESSIONS WILL BE SENT VIA EMAIL.

    This project aims to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and continuity over Years 5 to 8. Following the disruption to education caused by the Covid crisis, this transition is more crucial than ever.  Central to the Work Group is the promotion of cross phase communication between teachers to address issues of maths curriculum and pedagogical transition as distinct from pastoral considerations. A key feature will be understanding how best to prioritise key aspects of the curriculum to help ensure pupils have mastered the fundamental understanding and skills they need to underpin their progression through upper KS2 and into KS3. 

    Linked ‘families’ of schools are encouraged to take part: ideally teachers from secondary schools and some of their associated primary schools will work together.  

    Multi-academy trusts could encourage groups of their schools to take part, in order to support collaboration across the KS2-3 transition. We encourage MATs to get in contact as we may be able to offer a bespoke group to enable a MAT-wide focus.  

    These networks are free to all teachers and schools involved.
