We are still encountering some teething problems with IT in our new building.  This is being worked on, but it can prove difficult for us to pick up phone messages.  Please email us (if you can) rather than leave messages so that we can respond quickly - info@arkbyron.org.

Maths

At Ark Byron Primary Academy, all year groups follow the Mathematics Mastery programme. This curriculum is aligned with our school vision as it has high expectations for every child, spends more time on fewer topics and focuses teaching on using mathematics principles to problem-solve.

This approach uses concrete manipulatives (actual objects such as Dienes blocks, number lines and bead strings), pictorial (pictures representing mathematical concepts) and abstract (e.g. written equations) strategies to ensure that every child has a deep understanding of mathematics.  The Maths "programmes of study" for each year group are included in the main Curriculum page.

If you would like further information about the curriculum please refer to the Parent Workshops tab (where you will find information from the workshops) or use the following links:
