Why join?

Learn about successful strategies used by schools to improve KS2 maths results.  Presented by mastery maths expert Steve Lomax, the course looks at the most effective ways to embed a deep understanding of the maths curriculum. It focuses on Years 3, 4 and 5 as accounting for 50% of the content which could appear in the National Curriculum Tests (SATs), and provides proven approaches that enable students to develop a strong foundational knowledge from an early age.

  • Teaching for secure and deep understanding - ‘mastery’ - in Years 3, 4 and 5 will improve outcomes at the end of KS2.

  • All strategies shared throughout the day have worked in schools to raise KS2 Maths standards, such as Expected standard from 17% to 81% (50% pupil premium), Greater Depth from 30% to 57%, Special Measures to Outstanding in 3.5 years.

  • Strengthen subject knowledge through practising your delivery of core teaching techniques such as the CPA approach and bar modelling.
