Maths is taught in six weekly blocks over four days of the week. The same topic is taught throughout school for the six week period. This allows children the opportunity to really understand the topic being studied without moving on too quickly. On one day of the week the school uses the Assertive Mentoring Programme ‘Big Maths’.
This programme has been chosen because of its proven track record in many other schools. It gives children the opportunity to check and refresh their skills in all areas of the maths curriculum for their year group whilst giving children the opportunity of tracking their own weekly scores in all areas which is very motivating for them.

We use a range of commercially available resources to enable teachers to effectively differentiate in maths and build on mastery learning. We use Classroom Secrets and White Rose resources. All work is based on six weekly assessments that come from Assertive Mentoring and covers the learning objectives set out in the national curriculum.
