Secondary Curriculum Development

Secondary Mastery PD Material

These materials offer a ‘fine-grained’ description of the key themes and big ideas of the national curriculum by detailing: – six broad mathematical themes a number of core concepts within each theme – a set of ‘knowledge, skills and understanding’ statements within each core concept – a collection of focused key ideas within each statement of knowledge, skills and understanding.

Using mathematical representations at KS3

Although manipulatives and representations are commonly used in primary mathematics or have been historically considered the reserve of lower prior attainers, they can be equally valuable for revealing mathematical structures at secondary level for all students. We have produced guidance for some of the most useful representations for Key Stage 3 mathematics. Each guidance document details: – what they are – why they are important – how they might be used.


generating new evidence of ‘what works’ to improve teaching and learning, funding independent evaluations of high-potential projects. We’ve tested over 190 high-potential programmes with over 1.3 million children and young people and our most promising programmes have enabled students to make +3 months of additional progress in a year.
