School: Nonsuch Primary School
Problem: A lack of tailored programmes to suit both the more gifted and underachieving pupils at the school.
Objective: The school wanted to challenge their gifted and talented pupils in a different way while developing a mathematics intervention programme that would support their lower achieving children.
Solution: MOTM helped improve levels of attainment amongst children, giving them an understanding of a wide variety of mathematical techniques and methods (such as fractions, percentages and multiplication tables) and making maths more accessible by delivering it through sport and activity.
The programme also had a positive impact on the children’s state of mind, with all participants reporting that their confidence levels in maths had improved as a result of the programme.
As well as MOTM provision, Aspire offered lunchtime support to increase the amount of competitive opportunities for the children and helped increase participation through their out of hours learning provision.
