In our primaries we are currently adapting to the new National Curriculum Framework.
The excellent teaching of maths, due to continued training and development by our maths specialists, guarantees high quality learning across the school. This shared expertise within the Academy, including the involvement of our secondary colleagues has built a strong teaching base in maths, a subject that the children enjoy. Emphasis is given to the use and application of knowledge, particularly when the students undertake problem solving through differentiated investigations. Interventions, such as ‘From Counting to Calculating,’ are rigorously used to support children who struggle in this subject and end of year results demonstrate the effectiveness of this aide. More able students are challenged through carefully planned differentiated work that maximises their potential.
Maths is a strength in all the Academy Primary Schools.
