Teaching for mastery 


Our Teaching for Mastery approach is underpinned by the NCETM (National Centre for for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics) 5 Teaching for Mastery principles. 




All children from Reception to Year 6 have 15 minute fluency sessions 3- 5 times a week. 

These sessions provide the opportunity for children to develop their use of mathematical language, their automaticity with their basic recall of number facts; secure their procedural efficiency and how they calculate and their use of the most efficient strategies. 

Manipulatives & Representations


As part our Teaching for Mastery approach and to deepen understanding, the children are provided with opportunities to use manipulatives to explore, question and discuss their mathematics.
