Differentiation by Depth: A day to explore how teaching for mastery can support and challenge all pupils in primary maths regardless of their prior attainment

Book now

During the day we will:

  • explore simple yet powerful ways to plan lessons to support and challenge all pupils responding to the National Curriculum expectations “Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly should be challenged through being offered rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content”.
  • establish and understand how “Teach Up, Keep Up” sessions including same day/week intervention sessions prevent the attainment gap and provide opportunities for “Those (pupils) who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material should consolidate their understanding, including through additional practice, before moving on”
  • develop a clear and practical understanding of the “Fab Four” – essential for developing a teaching for mastery approach to support and challenge all pupils.
  • Share and discuss case studies of schools that have significantly increased the number of children attaining a scaled score of 110+ by the end of KS2.
