Primary Mathematics Professional Development Day

7 November 2015

Mathematics mastery; a means to an end?

Saturday, 7th November 2015 10am to 4pm
Wycombe High School, Buckinghamshire HP11 1TB

Book online here

The event is being held on a Saturday to avoid problems with cover. It is priced so that schools can afford to send two members of staff (about half the price of a typical LA course) - staff enjoy the day's training together, and are more likely to discuss and implement what they have experienced on their return to school.

Director for Primary at the NCETM,

On the day

We provide a lovely lunch and refreshments, and do everything possible to make it a great day out for those who attend.

The feedback on last year's event and sessions was excellent.

Consider sending at least one member of staff, as it is rare to have so many experts in the field of primary mathematics together for the day. It really is an opportunity not to be missed!
