Diving Deeper into Mathematics - Preparing Subject Leads for Inspection

Audience: Primary
Multiple sessions
  • Primary School Improvement Training Package
  • Key Stage 1
  • Key Stage 2

Brief Overview

Whilst a Deep Dive in Reading is a given in any Ofsted inspection, a Deep Dive in Maths is also highly likely. This course will help to prepare Maths Subject Leaders to provide a comprehensive and knowledgeable summary of their subject area, getting to grips with EYFS right through to Year 6, whilst identifying areas that need further investigation or development.

Please note: This is a three-part course. Delegates must commit to attending all three sessions and completing the intersessional tasks.

  • Understand the role of the subject leader in an inspection.
