‘Mathematics Teaching Research Group’ link


One of my key aims as a Headteacher is to ensure that we are an outward facing organisation, learning from others and bringing good practice back into Fordcombe. Both Mrs Hood and Mrs Watling met with a mathematics Specialist Leader in Education (SLE) last week, who came to Fordcombe to look at how we are planning and teaching mathematics and how we are getting the most from the time that we are spending with children in order to embed their learning. This link has been a great way to get external validation of the work we are already doing at Fordcombe, as well having someone from outside school questioning us and making us think about how we might improve what we are delivering. One of the more visible signs of this link, is the tables and number bonds challenge that has come home with pupil this term.
