Leaders across the trust are exploring the idea of mastery in maths together.
Following a year’s work with the Jurassic Maths Hub, teachers at Preston are now fully embracing a mastery approach to maths. The new approach has been led by Assistant Head Melissa Oliver who is passionate about providing high quality learning. Melissa said “We feel that the new approach is increasing children’s ability to reason and to articulate their thinking. Earlier in the term leaders from across the trust came together at Preston to observe a mastery maths lesson from class teacher Chris Hallett. A great deal of discussion followed the lesson and leaders went away with a much clearer understanding of the mastery approach and possible implications for their own school’s improvement planning.
