From September 2019, Ofsted has proposed changes to its inspection framework. Many of you would have heard of the refocusing on the Curriculum and how it is taught; supporting a knowledge-based approach and emphasis on vocabulary. But what does this look like in Mathematics?
This half-day course is a chance for Coordinators and Middle Leaders to review their school Mathematics Curriculum whether you are looking for ways to improve the impact of existing schemes/reinvigorate units, support better connections or looking to redesigning it from scratch (and even consider a more conceptual based approach). There will also be some opportunity to explore designing a Curriculum to support mathematical vocabulary and retention of knowledge.
All ideas and approaches explored are supported by research, case studies and international approaches.

• To identify what an outstanding knowledge-based curriculum could look like in Mathematics.
• To identify key mathematical knowledge, skills and concepts that should be part of any effective long-term plan for Mathematics.
• Consider approaches to support vocabulary acquisition and application.
• Consider effective approaches for retention of knowledge.
• Explore inquiry-based learning; developing children as Mathematicians and acquiring their own knowledge.
• Consider research and case studies in the UK and beyond.
• Have an opportunity to evaluate your own school’s Mathematics provision and identify next steps.
