NCETM Teaching for Mastery School

Teaching for Mastery at Holywell


As a teaching for mastery school, we strive to achieve the following key principles in our lessons:

Achievable for all
Deep and sustainable learning
The ability to build on something that has already been sufficiently mastered by spending longer on topics
The ability to reason about a concept and make connections
Factual, conceptual and procedural fluency
Longer time on key topics – going deeper to embed learning
Challenge for ALL!

What are TRGs?

As a school, we work collaboratively with teachers from other schools hosting Teacher Research Groups. 

Each TRG is led by a Primary Mastery Specialist and involves 12 teachers. There are teachers from a variety of partner schools, all of whom share our desire to be exceptional.  The TRG meets every half term to focus on elements of teaching for mastery. The TRG meeting includes a pre-lesson discussion; lesson observation, and post-lesson discussion; a real opportunity to engage in high-quality, sustained, collaborative professional development and participate in an important national project.
