Description

This programme involves mainstream and special schools working together to improve SEND provision in maths. Each Work Group will be formed from at least one special school working with a small group of mainstream schools, either primary, secondary or both, and will focus on a content area or theme – for example financial education, or deeper questioning – that is relevant to all students. Participants will explore ways to encourage reasoning and the use of manipulatives, providing a different approach to working with SEND students across mainstream and special schools. The pedagogy introduced, and any resources trialled, would support the principles of teaching for mastery.

Who is this for?

All teachers of mathematics at primary, secondary and special schools. Ideally teachers should have good subject knowledge and at least two years’ experience in the classroom. This Work Group would also be suitable for a SENCo in mainstream schools with a strong background in mathematics.

What is involved?

  • Three day workshops working with teachers from other schools in the Work Group to reflect on current practice and clarify understanding of how SEND impacts within a mathematical lesson.
  • GAP tasks to complete in school, integrated with and supported by work done in the workshop.

Intended Outcomes

Teachers will improve their understanding of the different areas within SEND and the pedagogy that is associated with working with these students. The sessions focus on one broad theme throughout to enable a greater understanding of the connections within mathematics, and to introduce modelling.

Classroom practice develops through a series of gap tasks where teachers try out activities to promote depth of understanding, reasoning and fluency; consequently, pupils will develop a deeper understanding of the mathematical ideas and be more confident in their mathematics.

Expectations of participants and their schools

Participants should be working with pupils with SEND either in a mainstream school or a special school. They must be able and willing to commit to participate fully in all elements of the programme.

The participant’s school must have the capacity and commitment to support them throughout the programme.

Funding

This workgroup is free to all participants.
