Growing Resilient Mathematicians - Primary Maths Conference

Event Date: 10 November 2020

This year’s Maths Conference will be wholly online meaning you don’t even have to leave home or school to participate! With a mix of live and recorded sessions spanning National Maths Week, there really is something for everyone, with the option to get the rest of your staff involved in the sessions and no need for supply cover.


This year’s conference will focus on how we can support pupils to achieve the three key aims of the National Curriculum.

  • To become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • To reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
  • To solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

Booked and confirmed delegates will be able to access the three lives sessions outlined below and then given access to four pre recorded sessions which can be watched at any time.
