Baines' Endowed Primary School: A Church of England Academy

"The impact in our school so far has been a positive one, although we have been impeded by Covid at times.  Our maths teaching is starting to be underpinned by the belief that all children need a deep understanding of the maths they are learning. Staff are starting to spend more time on key concepts that are revisited and reviewed. Devoting time to key concepts is starting to enable us to represent concepts in lots of different ways , teach the processes, then allow the children to apply their knowledge, increasingly rapidly and accurately. This is hopefully starting to commit key facts to children’s long term memory. Our maths team certainly values the Maths Hub meeting and networking opportunities. They leave inspired, full of ideas to improve the teaching and learning at Baines'.
