Maths subject leader

As the Maths Subject Leader you will be turned to for support and guidance, as well as acting as a role model for the staff and children as you champion maths in your school.

These pages will provide some useful information and files for you to use, either to help you as you develop mathematics across the school or to give ideas for support for your staff.

Having deep subject knowledge is also an important element of your role so these pages will also help you in this, with support in your knowledge and understanding of pedagogy and the curriculum.


Approach to planning

Be creative, with problem solving, reasoning and data handling a part of every unit. It is a great way to teach and learn these areas meaningfully and lends itself to a cross-curricular approach to teaching around a context. 

School maths policies

A scheme of work showing your medium term plans should be published on your website. A set of plans for your school is provided here along with some starting points for your calculation policies.

Subject knowledge

Pedagogical subject knowledge is an aspect of support you will be continuously providing your staff, so here are some documents, reports and ideas to help you keep on top of the teaching of primary mathematics.

Fluency in essential skills

Here are suggestions to increase the focus on developing the basic essential skills of the children. It is a minimum requirement so has lower expectations than the NC PoS.

Useful links

There are many websites out there providing some wonderful maths ideas... and some that are not! Here are some of my favourites and the ones I use a lot.
