National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics
Birchwood Junior School holds direct links with the NCETM. Much of our planning and classroom practice comes from training provided by the team at the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). We continue to work together to improve the quality of our teaching and strive for excellence for each and every learner in our setting.
East Midlands Maths Hub
Birchwood Junior School is also part of the East Midlands Maths Hub. This Hub offers all of our staff the opportunity to work with other schools, making links to reflect on our practice and work together to build our mastery approach. Our Maths lead has been trained by Debbie Morgan, the director of the NCETM and works as a Mastery Specialist throughout the county. She also has a Masters qualification in Mathematics Education and is passionate about ensuring that children in our setting receive the highest standard of mathematics teaching possible.
