At both our schools we promote outstanding learning of mental maths with our Maths Passport.
We know that the more calculation children can do mentally, the more readily they will be able to learn mathematics. Every pupil is assessed on their learning journey through the curriculum for mental maths with a planet passport for each level. At the end of each passport children receive a special certificate.
We run regular workshops for parents so that families can help children practice at home. We have run regional mathematics conferences to explain our approach to teachers from other schools. Our keynote speaker is Ray Maher, a national and international advocate for successful mathematics teaching, who invented the passport idea.
