Primary Teaching for Mastery Work Groups Application 19/20

Primary Mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups

Information and Application Form for 2019-20

In 2019/20, all Maths Hubs will be running primary mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups led by Mastery Specialists. This programme is for schools who have a commitment to developing a teaching for mastery approach. Although the participation involves two teachers attending events outside of the school, it is expected that these two teachers lead development across the whole school.

The closing date is Friday 22 March 2019 when all applications received will be considered and places allocated. We are looking for 100 Schools and half of these spaces have been allocated already so admit your application as soon as possible to avoid dissapointment.

Application Form Here


Who can apply

The Work Groups are intended for schools that are already committed to using teaching for mastery approaches for primary mathematics. Schools should also have the capacity for engaging in significant development work during 2019/21. Schools that have already begun to engage with teaching for mastery are more likely to be prioritised by the Maths Hub.



There is no charge to schools participating in the Work Group. Each school will receive a £1000 grant towards the cost of the required teacher release time and financial help towards the purchase of textbooks (subject to DfE confirmation.)


How to apply

Schools interested in applying to be part of a Work Group in 2019/20 should complete the application form here and submit to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Friday 22nd March 2019.

There is the opportunity to engage in the programme with other schools that you already work with, for example as part of an Academy Trust or local cluster of schools. Each school must still make an individual application, but you can indicate on the application form the schools you would like to be placed with.
