In Year 7 we follow Mathematics Mastery, a programme which programme empowers and equips teachers to improve students' enjoyment, resilience, understanding and attainment in Maths. It is based upon the following principles: 

  • Studying fewer topics in greater depth
  • Mastery for all students (ability is not innate and is increased through effort)
  • Number sense and place value come first
  • Problem solving is central
