EEF Maths KS2/3



A keen focus on improving high quality teaching is pivotal in improving children's outcomes and narrowing the gap. Excellent Maths teaching requires strong content knowledge but this on its own is not sufficient. Teachers and leaders of Maths must also know the ways in which pupils learn and the best ways that pupils can be taught Mathematics as well as recognising difficulties they are likely to encounter in the subject.

In this session, we will explore research findings that schools can use to make a significant difference to pupils' learning, and have focused on the questions that questions that appear to be most salient to practitioners. This sessions is aimed at Subject Leaders, SLT and Headteachers with the responsibility for leading improvements in Mathematics teaching in both primary and secondary schools. Classroom teachers will also find the session used to guide their choices in day-to-day teaching.

Primary Literacy Programme (5 Days)

£95 per delegate 


Research shows that children eligible for PP start school 13.5 months behind their high-income peers based upon vocabulary scores. Language is essential for pupils: it provides the foundations of thinking, learning and well-being and should therefore be prioritised. 

In this Primary Literacy programme, we will develop an understanding of the evidence based for Literacy whilst exploring its relevance to your own school context and setting. Through the series of sessions, we will unpick the recommendations from the EEF's guidance reports and will explore

  • The importance of Speaking and Listening as the foundation for learning and the implications of this for the classroom
  • Embedding a balanced approach to the teaching of Reading
  • Exploring the teaching of Writing as a process 

The sessions will facilitate the opportunity for discussion and sharing ideas within a community of like-minded practitioners and will provide you with the supporting tools and practical advice to bring to life evidence informed practice in Literacy. As part of the programme, you will identify priorities for your school and develop plans to implement evidence-informed processes, practices and programmes and explore how effective implementation processes will help you sustain improvement over time. 

This training programme is suitable for English/Literacy Subject Leaders, Senior Leaders and Headteachers. It is advisable that attendees have the necessary time and space to attend all sessions and complete any gap tasks between sessions to engage in the programme fully.
