How do we know it works?
A six-week study conducted by academics from Leeds Beckett University has concluded that the MOTM programme both improves maths attainment and increases physical activity levels.
School: Nonsuch Primary School
Problem: A lack of tailored programmes to suit both the more gifted and underachieving pupils at the school.
Objective: The school wanted to challenge their gifted and talented pupils in a different way while developing a mathematics intervention programme that would support their lower achieving children.
Solution: Maths on the Move helped improve levels of attainment amongst children, giving them an understanding of a wide variety of mathematical techniques and methods (such as fractions, percentages and multiplication tables) and making maths more accessible by delivering it through sport and activity.
The programme also had a positive impact on the children’s state of mind, with all participants reporting that their confidence levels in maths had improved as a result of the programme.
As well as Maths on the Move provision, Aspire offered lunchtime support to increase the amount of competitive opportunities for the children and helped increase participation through their out of hours learning provision.
