The Pioneer Federation Maths Mastery Approach

Across the Pioneer Federation schools we are ‘teaching for mastery in maths’ this phrase describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering maths. This approach enables pupils to acquire a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject. This approach to teaching has been developed across the UK and more information on this can be found on the following website: www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/47230

Curriculum Sequencing

Our teachers use the White Rose schemes of learning (SOLs) for mixed age classes, which can be found at whiterosemaths.com/resources/schemes-of-learning/primary-sols. Their aim is to develop a whole new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress.

The termly overviews show the objectives for each block. These objectives derive directly from the National Curriculum. The objectives in each block are broken down into a series of carefully planned small steps.
