Our Approach to Mathematics
At Hawes Side Academy our approach to teaching Mathematics is through a 'maths mastery approach' which offers all pupils access to the Mathematics curriculum. Children develop their mathematical fluency by being taught to solve mathematical problems with a deeper understanding of the subject.
This approach is an inclusive approach where children are given the time to think deeply about the mathematics involved in order to gain a deeper understanding of concepts. Through this approach children also build their self-confidence and resilience.
Children who grasp concepts quickly are challenged with rich and sophisticated problems; those children who are not sufficiently fluent are provided with additional support to consolidate their understanding before moving on.
