What is Mastery Maths?
We teach mastery maths through 'Power Maths'. At its core, a mastery approach rejects the idea that some children can’t do maths. It recognises that by nurturing positive attitudes and building confidence in mathematics, all children can achieve.

Concepts are built in small, logical steps and are explored through clear mathematical structures and representations. Children are taught together in year groups and the focus is on depth - not acceleration - so that all children have a chance to embed learning. Teaching is supported by high-quality resources which present the flow of lessons coherently and provide opportunities for plenty of intelligent practice.

Assertive Mentoring

These provide regular coverage of the essential skills needed to ensure good pupil progress in maths across the whole school. Pupils take the Weekly Basic Skills Check once a week using a positive ‘beat your own score’ approach. It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

The same knowledge and skills are ‘tested’ every week, in the same order at the same level of difficulty making gradual weekly progress inevitable as they become embedded over time. These ensure that essential knowedge is embedded in the long term memory.

Strawberry Jam, Lemon Curd and Chocolate Spread help children with their fluency by rapidly recalling recalling number facts. Squirrels, Robins and Owls complete these each week, trying to beat the previous weeks score.
