Mathematics

At Ravensthorpe CE (VC) Junior School we have adopted a mastery approach to the teaching and learning of maths.

What do we mean by mastery?
The essential idea behind mastery is that all children need a deep understanding of the mathematics they are learning so that:
future mathematical learning is built on solid foundations which do not need to be re-taught
• there is no need for separate catch-up programmes due to some children falling behind
• children who, under other teaching approaches, can often fall a long way behind, are better able to keep up with their peers, so that gaps in attainment are narrowed whilst the attainment of all is raised
