Preventing the Gap – Making Big Impacts through Small Changes in Mathematics

 I would like to invite you to join me from 9:15-3:15pm on Wednesday 8th February 2017 to consider leading and managing high achievement in mathematics in your school. The session, sponsored by Oxford University Press and organised by LA, offers the opportunity to attend a free full day* of professional development.

During the day we will consider how to make big impacts through small changes in the teaching of mathematics, looking at:

  • What does effective mastery look like in mathematics, and how can this be based on Bruner’s and Dienes’ research?
  • Concrete, Pictorial to Abstract: tasks to help children understand the concepts behind what they are asked to do, to ensure that all children are successful in mathematics.
  • How to leverage the powerful aims of the 2014 National Curriculum to support Mastery.
  • Problem solving, including a deep understanding of Bar Modelling as used in Singapore.

Numbers will be limited to 80 delegates (max 2 delegates per school) so please book early.  Please press control and click here to book a place.  If you experience any problems please email

Thank you, I look forward to meeting you.
