Code: 19MAT/039P Achieving mathematical age-related expectations by the end of Year 6

Grappling with the aims and content within the Upper Key Stage 2 (UKS2) curriculum, it is increasingly important to understand what age-related expectations should look like. Aimed at teachers working with Year 6 pupils, this course will support practitioners with strategies, practical ideas and resources that can be used to enable pupils to secure age-related learning by the end of the UKS2 phase.

This course will support teachers to help their pupils achieve the national standard and modify teaching to accelerate learning so that pupils achieve their potential.

During the day, delegates will investigate the key mathematical concepts that pupils find tricky alongside being given practical strategies to develop thinking using mathematical resources in the classroom.This will allow teachers an opportunity to map out their long-term plan across the year.

By providing exemplifications of possible sequences of learning, teachers will develop further familiarity with the Year 6 content while developing a sequence to teach back in their own classroom tailored to suit the needs of their pupils.

Code: MAT/19/265/P Enabling teaching assistants to support and develop pupils’ resilience and reasoning in mathematics - afternoon session

Many pupils lack resilience in mathematics. Teaching assistants can make a real difference to improve this.

This brand-new, two-hour practical session will support TAs to develop pupils’ resilience in mathematics.

Delegates will leave with a range of practical strategies that they can use to:
• support problem-solving
• teach pupils to sustain their focus when asked to think for themselves
• improve pupil’s confidence and understanding of fractions.

The local cluster training is repeated in morning and afternoon sessions so as many TAs as possible can benefit.

Code: 19DMS/048A Intervention tracking in SIMS

This course will enable SLT, INCOs/SENCOs, behaviour and attendance managers to use SIMS to record the support and resources allocated to vulnerable pupils and track the cost and effectiveness of these resources. Schools will be able to monitor and gauge how these resources affect Key Performance Indicators. Provide evidence of Pupil Premium grant strategy, spending and effectiveness. Delegates will learn how to build a detailed evidence base of the interventions offered for disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils, and school attainment strategies. The cost of additional resources can be recorded, enabling tracking of the cost and effectiveness of each intervention.

Further analysis can be achieved to show the progress of various groups of pupils, i.e. Pupil Premium, SEN and school defined groups of pupils. The following reports are available in the Interventions module in SIMS to support progress monitoring and improve student outcomes: - School Intervention – showing interventions in place across the whole school - Student Intervention – giving details of interventions for individual pupils - Interventions Outcome Analysis – see how successful different types of interventions are across the whole school - Interventions Cost Analysis – showing cost per intervention and per pupil
