Ryvers School

Grow, Learn, Give




At Ryvers School, our aim is to deepen and strengthen children's understanding of maths and not just accelerate learning.  As a result of this, the children are able to develop fluency before moving onto reasoning and problem solving. The teaching is supported by the use of pictorial and concrete resources, before moving to the abstract.

Maths mastery is a teaching and learning approach that aims for pupils to develop deep understanding of maths rather than being able to memorise key procedures or resort to rote learning. The end goal and expectation is for all pupils to have acquired the fundamental facts and concepts of maths for their year or key stage. 


During children's time at Ryvers, our pupils will learn the following essential skills of mathematics:

  • An understanding of the important concepts and an ability to make connections within mathematics;
  • A broad range of skills in using and applying mathematics;
  • Fluent knowledge and recall of number facts and the number system;
  • The ability to show initiative in solving problems in a wide range of contexts, including the new or unusual;
  • The ability to think independently and to persevere when faced with challenges;
  • To embrace the value of learning from mistakes and false starts;
  • A wide range of mathematical vocabulary;
  • A commitment to and enthusiasm in the subject.
  • To embrace the value of learning from mistakes and false starts;
