Harris Primary Academy Kenley teachers work together to make Mathematics Outstanding!
Teachers at Harris Primary Academy Kenley showed their commitment to improvement and lifelong learning when Mathematics Leader, Ms Buck, brought them together for a shared INSET aimed at developing advanced mastery approaches in their teaching.
Mr Britt, Executive Principal, said "I was delighted with the level of commitment and reflection demonstrated after a long day of teaching. Staff were really motivated to work together to ensure that our approaches to challenge and mastery truly deepened mathematical knowledge and reasoning in pupils of all abilities."
Ms Buck led an hour long INSET session which involved talk for learning, partner challenges and some clearly modelled examples of best practice. It was recognised by all that the session had significantly improved teacher confidence in subject knowledge, which staff had felt they needed to revisit.
