All teaching in maths follows the New Curriculum, with planning being supported by the Lancashire Framework. Children are encouraged to develop their skills through games and activities and can make use of a wide variety of resources to help with their progress in the subject. In classes, children are grouped in accordance with their ability so that teaching is pitched at a level that suits them. When needed, additional support can also be offered.
Initially, children are encouraged to explore and learn about the subject in a practical way. Over time, they move on to more formal methods. Years 1 to 6 are now using the Assertive Mentoring scheme for maths. With weekly skills lessons, Assertive Mentoring is making it more straightforward for many children to recognise areas that they need to improve. Use of the MyMaths programme also means that children can work on their skills at home with their own personal account. Homework can be set through this but it offers a variety of games and activities that can be accessed at any time.
