Looking back on 2021-2022

It has been so lovely to catch up with teachers and headteachers during this past year. I have been lucky enough to deliver some face to face training in schools as well as continuing to work on-line with schools across the country.

In the autumn term, Maths leads shared their priorities for the 2021-2022 – do they reflect your thoughts for the past academic year?

Ensuring that basic number facts have automaticity is high on school’s agendas to ensure that children are able to concentrate on mathematical concepts rather than being hindered by weak number facts.

OfSted has begun to loom again and coming together has allowed schools to share their experiences as well as reflecting where subject leads are (mathematically) and what they now need to work on. at our final network meeting in June, I offered maths lead the opportunity to complete their own end of year report card so that they could reflect on where they were across all phases.

I am continuing to offer a termly virtual network meeting during 2022-2023.

We will be considering the 2022 data for our first statutory assessments in two years along with implications for the coming year.

We are still awaiting the Mathematics subject report from Ofsted – watch this space.

Forward Planning


Inspiring Maths has been working with Karen Lawley of Prime Maths Solutions to put together an offer for  mathematics CPD for 2018-19. I am already taking bookings for next academic year and can provide high quality, relevant, engaging CPD for your school and staff. If you have already identified mathematics as your priority for next academic year, then please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss further. You also might like to click on this link.
