RESEARCH AND INNOVATION WORK GROUP – PRIMARY NQT MATHEMATICS SUPPORT

This project is designed to support Primary NQTs who have had a disrupted experience of the classroom due to COVID-19 lockdown and would benefit from support to develop into a more confident mathematics practitioner. It will focus on developing a deep understanding of teaching for mastery including the progression in the use of key representations across key stages using the DfE Primary National Curriculum Guidance 2020 and supporting NCETM materials.

RESEARCH AND INNOVATION WORK GROUP – PARENTAL ENGAGEMENT

The EMW Maths Hub have teamed up with the Derby Research School and the SHINE Trust to support schools in running ‘Maths Masterclasses’ for parents. The programme has already been tested and has been proved to help a number of parents develop their understanding of how their children learn number in school so that they feel able to effectively support their children with maths in the home.
