At Pennyhill, we believe in teaching Mathematics through the principles of a ‘Mastery’ approach.
Pupils are exposed to the same curriculum content at the same pace, allowing them all full access to the curriculum by focusing on developing deep understanding and secure fluency with facts and procedures. Differentiation is achieved by offering pupils varied levels of challenge, giving them the flexibility to select their own learning level. By offering rapid support and intervention to address each individual pupil’s needs, we are able to support all learners to make progress in the mathematical skills they develop.
An approach based on mastery principles:
As a school, we use a wide variety of resources to support and enrich pupils’ learning. These include: ‘Rising Stars Mathematics’, White Rose Maths Hubs guidance and schemes of learning, NRich and other resources from the NCETM.
