Improving Maths at KS2 and KS3 – Professional Learning Community
11 November 2017
The Improving Maths in KS2 and KS3 Professional Learning Community (PLC) is a Derby wide programme bringing together secondaries and primaries to improve practice and pedagogy and develop continuity between the phases.
Good maths skills are essential for everyday life and a range of careers. Yet there remains a large and persistent attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) believes the best way to change this is through better use of evidence: looking at what has – and has not – worked in the past. To support good maths teaching in Key Stages 2 and 3, they’ve published new guidance that gives schools and teachers practical ‘do’s and don’ts’ of great maths teaching.
The report covers eight practical and evidence-based recommendations on areas where there is evidence that schools can use to make a significant difference to pupils’ learning.
The PLC will delve deeper into the recommendations to support their effective implementation in schools. The drive is to ensure that the research about what works is put into practice, support making better use of evidence to inform teaching and learning so it really makes a difference in the classroom. The following booklet offers more information.
The groupings for the PLC are arranged by geographical area to help promote a networks of schools. If you would like to take part, please complete the booking form below. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.11 November 2017
