At Westfield we follow a maths mastery approach. This means that children will be taught to master maths, by developing their mathematical fluency without having to resort to rote learning. It enables them to solve non-routine maths problems without having to memorise procedures.

Maths mastery allows the children to go deeper with their learning rather than accelerate wider. The children have time to really grasp what they are learning which allows them to have a secure understanding of mathematical concepts.

We have found a positive impact on the children’s outlook of maths and their self-confidence and resilience with problem solving and reasoning too!
