Leading on mathematics network (Learning without Limits)

Why is this important?

Membership of this network will enable those who lead mathematics to consider their role in creating an environment free of limiting beliefs. As a community, we will further explore Learning without Limits and the implications for leadership. We will consider how to challenge the way existing education systems reinforce fixed mind-set thinking in adults and children.

In the context of national and international research, members of this professional learning community will consider their role as a leader in:

  • enabling all children to have a chance to surprise us – and themselves – about what they can achieve when they experience a richly creative broad and balanced curriculum;
  • developing expert teachers who trust in every child’s learning capacity, and focus their energy on planning high quality learning experiences;
  • ensuring that challenge within lessons is appropriate so children develop the dispositions to work at the very limit of their current understanding;
  • ensuring that feedback about learning is kind, specific and helpful and builds motivation to approach new learning in a very powerful way;
  • supporting teachers to find a way through for every child in order to remove ‘barriers’ to learning.

The ‘Learning without Limits’ toolkit will underpin the work of the network providing a framework to aid school self-evaluation and to develop the leadership qualities of openness, questioning, inventiveness, persistence, emotional stability, generosity and empathy.
