East Midlands Primary Mathematics 2018
Following the success of our last 4 years of Maths Conferences, NETS Training has organised the 5th Primary Mathematics Conference in partnership with NCETM, MA, ATM and East Midlands South and West Maths Hubs.
Over the last few years we have focussed on the many changes around teaching mathematics such as embedding the new curriculum and it's expectations as well as developing teaching for mastery in Mathematics.

Putting Wellbeing at the Heart of Education
Following the success of our last 2 years of Behaviour and Wellbeing Conferences, NETS Training has organised the 3rd Primary Wellbeing Conference in partnership with EPIC Psychology and Wellbeing Service, Leicestershire County Council and SLE’s from Teaching School Alliances.
Children and staff in schools today face significant pressure. Whether it’s academic, social, financial or domestic pressure this can take its toll on individuals and become a significant barrier to learning. It is crucial that schools find ways to support their communities to be healthy, happy and to have the best chance of succeeding. Our schools and partners have been working together to create a conference which identifies practical research informed solutions for schools to best support pupil and staff wellbeing.
At the conference held on 25/05/2017 we were delighted to welcome Dr Margot Sunderland as our lead Keynote speaker as well as school and sector based experts who will share their expertise throughout our workshop programme.
