Courses for 2021-2022 

Primary Mathematics Subject Leader Networks. For the fifth year running I will be providing training and support to primary school leaders of mathematics from Bradford and beyond. 

Network Meetings to Inspire and Inform

Bradford and Beyond Primary Maths Subject Leaders

BE PART OF IT

Hosted by Sharon Day

2021 – 2022

In these uncertain times it is good to create support networks. For the fifth year running, this series of four afternoon workshops, spread across the academic year, is for Bradford (and beyond) subject leaders of mathematics. It will provide them with the opportunity to update, network and develop. The sessions will keep them up to speed with new initiatives and there will also be bespoke elements to the sessions as the content will be built around meeting identified needs within your own school. Agendas will be set by the mathematics subject leaders attending which will be complemented by messages, ideas and resources that the course leader will share with them. Maths subject leaders from the schools who attended over the last three years are signing up again, so join us and be part of it.

  • The training will take the form of four afternoon sessions, spread across the academic year.
  • The cost is £220 for the year’s support for each subject leader.
  • The venue will be at Bowling Park Primary School, Usher Street, East Bowling, Bradford, BD4 7DS

Teacher support networks for Primary teachers from Bradford and beyond. Network Meetings to Inspire and Inform Classroom Teachers

In these uncertain times it is wise to create support networks. There have been so many recent challenges for teachers and pupils and the gaps that have developed in understanding maths for some children have appeared to have widened. For the academic year 2021-2022, there will be a series of three half-day workshops for the teachers of the Primary age range from across Bradford and beyond. It will provide them with the opportunity to network and support one another during this challenging year. Agendas will be set by the teachers attending which will be complemented by messages, ideas and resources that the course leader will share with them. The main foci of support will be around teaching maths but there will also be a focus on teacher well-being.

  • The meetings will take the form of three half-day sessions, spread across the academic year.
  • The total cost is £90 for the year’s support for each teacher (all three sessions).
  • There are two venues for the sessions so you can pick the venue most convenient for your school staff
  • Foci for discussion will include ideas for ‘catch-up’ and there will also be opportunities for moderation of mathematics
