Mathematical skills are vital life skills and therefore a focus of great importance for us at Withernsea Primary School.
Lessons are daily with specific skills being taught as well as practising these concepts in other lessons. We follow the new national curriculum.
The children work in their classes for lessons but work is tailored to their individual needs. Work is carefully differentiated for each pupil so pupils work at the level best for them and to develop their skills. This means not all pupils work at age related expectations - some will be challenged to work above, and others supported working below expectations.
HLTAs are used to consolidate learning in an afternoon for any children who have not fully grasped the teaching in the morning lesson. This ensures that no pupil falls behind on their learning.
All teachers are responsible for the mathematics in their classroom. However, we also have a mathematics team to lead this subject in school, they ensure we have the right resources and a consistent approach to teaching and learning.
Every year we evaluate mathematics by observing lessons being taught by all teachers, looking at how the teachers plan the subject, looking at teacher assessment, asking the children about their lessons for their thoughts and ideas, and evaluating the work the children have produced.
Using all this information we prepare an annual action plan to develop the subject.
