Ofsted survey report looking at maths inspection evidence drawing attention to serious inequalities in pupils’ experiences and achievements.
This Ofsted survey report is based predominantly on evidence from inspections of mathematics between January 2008 and July 2011 in maintained schools in England. Inspectors visited 160 primary and 160 secondary schools and observed more than 470 primary and 1,200 secondary mathematics lessons. The report is also informed by good practice visits to 11 primary schools, one secondary school and two sixth-form colleges.
The report includes examples of best practice that help avoid or overcome the inequalities and weaker practice that exacerbates them.
