A Guide to Teaching Maths at Key Stage 3 for the Non-Specialist

This INSET will build on advice from groups like DFE and NCETM to develop a pedagogy that delivers high-quality and highly engaging maths lessons at Key Stage 3. We will look at how we can be creative in maths, as well as the importance of applying maths skills in a range of contexts.

  • Overcoming barriers in maths and exploring creative approaches to achieve fluency
  • Explore the pedagogy of great maths teaching to ensure students learn the concepts and essential underpinning skills to support learners towards GCSE/Functional Skills
  • Support learners’ misconceptions and those who struggle with maths
