St.Teresa’s School introduced the Mathematics Mastery Programme in September 2017. We have experienced positive results and will continue to use this approach into the future. It involves a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject of Maths.
At St Teresa's we believe that all pupils can achieve, we teach the whole class together building on previous knowledge of what the children already know and plan for small steps. We encourage children to use the precise mathematical language and to speak in full sentences when explaining. We spend longer time on key mathematical topics and provide time to go deeper and embed learning. We also recognise the needs of all pupils and provide rapid interventions when needed.
