At Springhead Primary School we see teaching for mastery in maths as allowing the pupils to gain a deep understanding of maths, allowing them to acquire a secure and long-term understanding of maths that allows them to make continual progress to move onto more complex topics.
We believe that everyone can do maths and there’s no such thing as a maths person. Maths is a subject that everyone can and should be able to perform confidently and competently.
We choose to teach by breaking down maths objectives into the smallest steps, so that every pupil is secure in every new concept before moving on. We focus upon teaching for fluency, reasoning and problem solving.
