‘Outstanding’ mathematics departments are vital to the performance and success of any school. The successful leader of mathematics must have a relentless focus on improving the quality of teaching and learning, be aware of the best of national practice and up to date with current changes in education. This programme, consisting of four one-day events hosted in schools all with ‘outstanding’ mathematics departments and a strong record of raising attainment, will provide opportunities to explore strategies that have been proven to raise achievement and engagement.
