Accelerate progress in Maths through effective planning and assessment

The aims of the course are to help to inform teachers at KS2 what and how to plan for and assess pupil progress in the national curriculum for mathematics. The course will focus on the three aims of the mastery curriculum; mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving and how these headings will inform the formative assessment of every aspect of the curriculum.

This hands-on course will consider the freedom of schools to apply their own assessment criteria to school documents as well as looking at the purposes and uses of assessment to the class teacher.

Participants will gain formative assessment ideas for use within their own schools and will have considered how summative assessment can be designed to support ongoing formative assessment.

Delegates will have access to ongoing e-mail support from the tutor. The support is available for one month after the course and is designed to give participants the chance to try out the techniques taught within the course and then contact the tutor with any questions that arise.
