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.

TEACHING FOR MASTERY READINESS

This Work Group is for schools who have a commitment to developing a teaching for mastery approach long term, but who currently need additional support for improving mathematics teaching, learning and leadership. Although the participation involves two teachers attending events outside of the school, it is expected that these two teachers have the opportunity to lead development across the whole school.
