Implementation: Mastery curriculum

Key features of our Maths Mastery curriculum:


  • High expectations for every child
  • An agreed proforma to plan and deliver mathematical concepts is used across the Key Stage
  • Number sense and place value come first
  • Focus on mathematical thinking and language
  • Resources and manipulatives to support and further understanding
  • Calculate with confidence– understand why it works
  • Problem solving is used to embed and extend learning


Mathematics Mastery places emphasis on the cumulative mastery of essential knowledge and skills in mathematics. It embeds a deeper understanding of maths by utilising a concrete, pictorial, abstract approach so that pupils understand what they are doing rather than just learning to repeat routines without grasping what is happening.
