Maths on the Move

In primary schools where maths results are below the national average, there is an obvious temptation to spend the Pupil Premium Fund on addressing the issue. And ensuring the continued development of gifted and talented pupils raises further challenges.

Aspire have created Maths on the Move, developed by teachers for teachers. It is a unique and innovative programme that uses the concept of active learning to enhance children’s confidence and attainment in maths.

The programme is suitable for all abilities and can be tailored to suit the individual requirements of your school.

Gifted and talented children benefit from booster sessions to reach the highest grades, while lower achieving pupils can improve their mathematical skills and confidence, benefiting from an alternative learning environment that’s proven to increase both confidence and ability.

Many schools have found that Maths on the Move is a great way to utilise the Pupil Premium or the Primary PE and School Sports Premium.

As well as providing experienced educators and learning materials, Aspire also ensures every pupil receives a termly progress report.

This means you can track and monitor the quality of the programme as well as your pupils’ progress, which gives you invaluable evidence to justify and demonstrate your premium spends when Ofsted visit your school.

 

CASE STUDY

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.
