Transcript of Narrowing the Gap

Narrowing the gap in mathematics Children who achieve level 4 or above in mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2 are four times more likely to gain an A*–C grade in mathematics than those who achieve level 3. Schools that successfully manage to narrow gaps in mathematics refuse to accept background, gender, ethnicity or race as an excuse for poor progress and attainment.
The school culture is one where every child is visible and valued.
They use data to identify the children at risk of underachieving and pinpoint aspects of mathematics that are presenting barriers to their learning.
They look out for children who have low confidence in mathematics and work to build up children’s self esteem, whilst offering genuine challenge and setting high expectations.
They adopt a range of teaching approaches, taking into account the needs of individuals and groups of children. Based on their identification of gaps, these schools engage in professional development, reflecting and evaluating its impact on learning, and in refining and strengthening quality first teaching. They know that as some gaps close, others may appear but they are ready to tackle new challenges as successfully as they did for others.
