Mastery Readiness

The Mastery Readiness Programme is for primary schools that want to adopt teaching for mastery in maths, but would benefit from a staged approach.

Schools that are successful in implementing sustained and meaningful change through teaching for mastery have key foundations already in place. 

These key foundations include:

  • Shared vision and culture around the importance of maths

  • A belief that every child can achieve highly in maths

  • A positive mindset towards maths amongst all staff

  • Good maths subject knowledge amongst teachers and TAs

  • Systems that maximise learning, such as timetabling, intervention, curriculum and pedagogical approaches

  • Teaching of arithmetical proficiency for all children, to support mathematical fluency by reducing cognitive load

  • Ongoing staff development, which is valued by all staff and senior leaders.
