Code: MAT/19/233/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: 19MAT/040P Intervening effectively – a place value diagnostic assessment and intervention teaching programme resource

The curriculum states that the majority of pupils will move broadly at the same pace. Not only is this challenging for some pupils, it places a huge demand on teachers and school leaders to secure a greater proportion of age-related pupils. Managing and providing opportunity for the right intervention, particularly for vulnerable pupils such as SEND, FSM, PPG and those at risk of not making expected progress, is essential.

The keystone of mathematics learning is place value and if pupils have gaps in this learning it has an impact on all other maths learning.

This course will provide a comprehensive diagnostic assessment that once completed will accurately identify gaps in learning. The assessment covers place value learning up to Year 3. Training will be provided in how to analyse the data and create a personalised intervention plan and how to make the most of the provided comprehensive teacher guidance.

These resources have been successfully used by schools who reported that they significantly changed the way they assessed for and delivered interventions. The cost of the course includes training, the diagnostic assessment, spreadsheets to record and analyse pupil’s responses and teacher guidance linked to every diagnostic question. Attendees will receive digital versions of this.

Code: 19DMS/072A SIMS Attendance Reporting (on school data) (LIMITED SPACES)

This course is designed to ensure schools make the most of the valuable management information that has been collected as part of routine attendance registration. Attendance and punctuality is now part of the new Ofsted inspection framework, under the behaviour and safety key judgements. The course will enable participants to produce key attendance information for vulnerable groups as well as being able to track pupils with low attendance and persistent absentees. This information can be used to monitor and ultimately improve pupil achievement, based on the reasonable assumption that if a pupil is not attending school, they will be at a considerable disadvantage.
