RAMJS has chosen to use the mastery approach to teach Maths. Each Maths lesson is led by the children’s thinking and discussions to develop ambitious problem solvers. We go at a slower pace to ensure each topic is explored at depth. We use the mastery approach as we believe every child should be given the chance to challenge themselves and achieve secure understanding, having faith in their own ability and learning. This supports our school aim of ‘Brighter futures built with Ambition, Courage and Respect; filled with Love, Hope and Faith’.
The school has chosen the mastery approach as it allows children to move through topics at broadly the same pace. Each topic is taught through small steps to ensure our children have a secure understanding of mathematical concepts. This slower pace leads to greater progress because it ensures that students are secure in their understanding. As a Methodist School, we continue John Wesley’s passion for education through this.
We want all children to enjoy Mathematics and to experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject and leading them to brighter futures.
