2020-21 Maths Work Group Opportunities and Resources FREE to ALL Schools

North West Three Maths Hub has the pleasure in offering the following Mathematics Programmes in 2020-21 for ALL schools in Sefton, Liverpool, Knowsley, Wigan and St Helens.

All programmes are FREE of Charge. The Work Groups and resources are all of high quality, based on research and are nationally accredited.

NCETM/Maths Hubs are pleased to announce that a ‘Ready to Progress Criteria’ document has been written and will be released shortly (before the summer break). This document is a well researched, evidence based (John Hattie) resource for Primary teachers focusing on key concepts to aid recovery and build firm foundations for pupils in Years 1-6. A Secondary phase document will follow shortly. This document will help to level the playing field and provide very clear guidance on what and how to teach the most important concepts.

Covid Recovery Alternative Provision:
The school year 2020/21 will be substantially affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. The knock-on effects on school life and teachers’ working lives can’t be predicted with any certainty. So, all Maths Hubs work will be flexible and adapt to changing realities. There’s likely to be more live online collaboration, often including use of video, for example. In addition, Work Group content will be adjusted to address schools’ recovery from coronavirus-related disruption alongside work on the central maths subject matter of each project. Further details will be provided in the autumn term when the Government provide further updates. All schools involved in the individual Work Groups will be kept fully informed via the Work Group lead and administration team.
