i spent the early part of my career fine tuning the role of subject leader. Various roles, Science, History (my degree subject), Geography (in small primaries you usually do both humanities) and eventually Maths which I’ve held for some years. In the glory days we went on wonderful courses led by the LA and proper Primary subject advisors. Some had 29 days worth of training in my LA. But in the last decade no such training has been around and foundation subjects played second fiddle to Core - after all they were the ones kids did SATs in and provided Ofsted with the data they craved. What happened?
