We love Maths at Ludlow Primary School
Every classroom has a dedicated maths area where a wide range of maths resources are available and accessible for all children to use in order to help them understand new concepts and skills. Interactive whiteboards and iPads are also used throughout the maths curriculum to help make maths exciting and accessible to all.
In addition to our Maths lessons, daily Basic Skills sessions take place to enable our pupils to secure their fluency in arithmetic. We have a whole school calculation policy which ensures that all staff and children are consistent in their use of effective and efficient teaching and learning methods. This helps ensure a smooth transition from class to class. The Calculation Policy is available for parents so they can see how maths is taught at Ludlow Primary School. We make effective use of maths intervention strategies to target learners who might need additional support at times and also provide booster session opportunities, in order to challenge children to reach their highest potential.
