Good practice in primary mathematics: evidence from successful schools
Ofsted survey report identifying good practice in the teaching of early mathematics.
This Ofsted survey report examines the work of schools that have strong track records of high achievement in mathematics. It identifies characteristics of effective practice in building pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding of number so that they demonstrate fluency in calculating, solving problems and reasoning about number. Some key common factors emerge that might be more widely replicated, as well as some differences between the schools.
