SMaR+ works with schools in a wide range of different contexts. We supply consultants to individual schools, cluster days, Maths Hubs across the UK. We also provide conference facilitation for larger groups of schools or for Local Authorities. We provide services to International Schools across the world, including Europe (most recently in France and Luxembourg), Japan and Qatar.

Bespoke Whole day

Individual School example

Recently SMaR+ ran an internal InSET day for a primary school on developing problem solving skills. A consultant was identified for the school, who worked with the subject leader to develop a day-long programme that met the specific needs of the school.

“Lots of great ideas that I now want to go and do in class”

“Lovely practical games and activities…”

School Alliance/Consortia

A headteacher in Deven approached SMaR+ recently to provide an InSET day focused on inspiring teachers to develop more practical and problem solving approaches in their maths teaching. The schools requested that the InSET day should involve as much practical and interactive activities as possible in each of the workshops. Director for Professional Development at SMaR+, Laurie Jacques, liaised between the schools and the consultants to ensure the day was polished to specifications of the schools.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the practical aspects of the conference…”

“Very engaging and made maths more interesting”

“Refreshing, lively and relevant!”

Sustained Support Package

One of our consultants is supporting a primary school over a sustained period of time in East London. The headteacher wants to improve the teaching and learning of all areas of mathematics in the classroom by enabling the teachers to work alongside a SMaR+ consultant to plan and team-teach various classes. In addition to this 1:1 support for teachers, part of the package also includes the consultant leading staff meetings/ twilights on some of the days she is in the school enabling the staff to tackle whole school issues together. This support is taking place over two school terms. The school identified their requirements with SMaR+’s Director for Professional Development, Laurie Jacques, who then pulled together an outline of the support. Once a consultant had been identified to take forward the work, the consultant liaised directly with the school to polish the programme of support.

Fees start at £365 + travel + VAT for a 2-hour twilight.
