Mathematics Mastery: a ‘mastery’ approach  

The curriculum for mathematics is cumulative.  Each school year begins with a focus on the concepts and skills with the most connections; concepts are then applied and connected throughout the school year to consolidate learning. This gives pupils the opportunity to ‘master maths’ through prior learning, and pupils develop mathematical fluency and conceptual understanding. Four key skills underpin our mathematics curriculum: conceptual understanding; mathematical thinking; language and communication; mathematical problem solving. Our daily maths lessons are split into two distinct sessions: one hour is spent exploring new concepts in mathematics and a separate, 15-minute, session is spent rehearsing   

key fluency elements that help pupils to develop greater competence in computation.  Further information can be found at
