Supporting you through Covid-19

Supporting you through Covid-19

As teachers ourselves, here at English Mastery we understand how extraordinarily difficult this period has been for all schools.

We’re therefore committed to supporting everyone using our programme through the year ahead.

Our mastery programme is now available from just £2,000* and provides the support of a consistent, well-sequenced and fully resourced KS3 English curriculum that:

  • Allows you to support students who are self-isolating with self-study workbooks that match what you're teaching in each lesson
  • Constantly looks backwards and forwards, providing opportunities for the retention, application and re-use of knowledge
  • Addresses missed learning by mapping core knowledge from the summer term against the year ahead
  • Supports your cover teachers in getting up to speed quickly with ‘anytime, anywhere’ online training and knowledge overviews, available in bite-sized chunks for each unit

* Discounts available for small schools

Support for transition and remote learning

We’ve produced a suite of transition units to make sure that students in Key Stage 3 get off to a flying start. These include Ancient Tales units for Years 7 and 8, and Short Change - a challenging, provocative short story that allows Year 9 students to engage in relevant, modern narrative. 

We’ve also provided PDFs of our self-study workbooks which can be downloaded from our MyMastery platform. These can be printed to support learning at home where there may be digital access barriers.

Remote teaching

All of the English Mastery programme's planning, delivery, assessment and intervention resources can be accessed anytime, anywhere via our MyMastery learning platform.

This means that teachers can get up to speed and plan from home, as well as access all of the resources if they need to deliver lessons via video from home.

Easy planning and bite-sized PD

Our MyMastery learning platform helps make planning simple and straightforward with bite-sized chunks of the curriculum separated out into staging posts so teachers can easily see what they need to know to deliver this week’s lessons.

This means your teachers are building their knowledge of mastery teaching in a slow and steady way, without being overwhelmed.

Support for cover teachers

Lesson overview videos help teachers get up to speed on the knowledge they need for that unit – ideal for teachers providing cover for other classes, or supply teachers coming in. They can also see at a glance where the class is up to and what is scheduled to be delivered that week, along with the resources for each lesson.

Induction videos also allow teachers who are not familiar with the mastery approach to get an overview before they start to teach the content.

Focused intervention for significant gaps

Every learner will have been affected by Covid-19 differently.

We believe that subject mastery is achievable for all students and so our programme design has always catered for mixed abilities accessing the same curriculum. 

Our foundation pathway supports students currently working below age-related expectations as they catch up with their peers. Students on the foundation pathway study and access the same rich curriculum, but we give them additional tailored help to scaffold their early progress through English.
