Great to see the inspirational work of 'Mitch' and the staff at Glenfall School receive well-deserved national recognition.

The 'Leading and Teaching for Mastery' elements described by Mitch form part of the Mastery in Mathematics Self-evaluation Tool developed by the GLOWMaths Hub. It has been designed to provide a framework for schools to review progress and identify next steps. Paper and electronic versions can be downloaded here:
