Heads of Mathematics and Line Manager Network Meeting
These termly meetings provide opportunities for heads of mathematics to focus of good practice and to discuss priorities in the management and development of mathematics within their departments. Training will also be provided to promote more rigorous and effective self-evaluation and planning for improvement in mathematics and to support HoDs and senior leaders in the implementation of the National Numeracy Framework, the mathematics key stage 3 and 4 programmes of study and the 2 new GCSEs in Mathematics and Mathematics - Numeracy.
Where senior leaders with responsibility for line management of the mathematics department have also attended all or part of these meetings in the past, this has been very helpful in disseminating key assessment and evaluation guidance, as well as case-studies of best practice both within and beyond and consortium.
• Continue to develop consistently high expectations of all pupils in mathematics and numeracy in all key stages; • Receive up-to-date information on curriculum initiatives and further training and guidance materials as they become available to equip leaders of mathematics in moving the school forward; • Meet with colleagues to share ideas and provide ongoing feedback on school initiatives; • Gain awareness of good practice in other departments across the consortium.
