Raising attainment in maths
Learn how to improve your maths offer by supporting staff to provide high-quality teaching in the classroom, and running evidence-based interventions.
Support staff to deliver high-quality teaching
Identify gaps in your staff's skills
Use our maths skills audit (primary) to identify your staff's training needs.
Offer CPD to secure high-quality teaching
Help your staff to provide high-quality, inclusive teaching to all pupils by making sure they have time for CPD. Allow your staff time to:
- Digest and embed guidance for the teaching of maths into their practice – for example, the EEF’s guides to improving maths in the Early Years and Key Stage 1 and in Key Stages 2 and 3
- Access maths hub support and resources – find your maths hub here
- Take part in training (such as the Teaching for Mastery programme)
- Access free online CPD videos, such as these resources from the Association of Teachers of Mathematics
These suggestions are outlined on pages 6 and 7 of the DfE’s example pupil premium strategy statement for primary and secondary schools.
