Primary Maths Specialist Contract

The good news is that the funding for this contract is to continue at least until after the Autumn Spending Review. We have recieved the following message:

The Government has confirmed its commitment to school improvement and, within this, the importance of continuing to raise standards in mathematics in our primary schools. Ministers recognise the role that Mathematics Specialist Teachers play in improving the teaching and learning of mathematics, and we are pleased to say that, despite the need to reduce spending across the board to tackle the current economic deficit, Ministers have decided that they wish to prioritise the funding needed to allow cohort one teachers on the MaST Programme to continue their second year of training and for cohort two teachers to begin their first year of training in September 2010.
