Specialist Leaders in Education

Stewart Murdoch


I have taught for 13 years in London (Boroughs of Ealing, Bexley and Lewisham) and most recently in Kent. My introduction to mastery began in 2015, attending CPD sessions from the Elmhurst Teaching School Alliance, this lead to my appointment as NCETM Professional Development Lead in 2016. The introduction and embedding of the mastery approach in my current school gave me the opportunity to represent the school at a KCC Mathematics Conference showcasing good examples in Mathematics Mastery. In September 2016, I was appointed Specialist Leader of Education for Primary Mathematics by the WTSA.
