The national curriculum emphasises the importance of all children mastering mathematics. The essential idea of mastery mathematics is that all children need a deep understanding of the maths they learn so that future maths concepts are built on solid foundations. At St John the Baptist school we teach a mastery maths curriculum and believe that with good teaching, effort and a ‘go for it’ attitude all children can achieve and enjoy maths.
