Numeracy

Mathematics Strategy

The aims of this strategy are based on the Count, Read, Succeed document. In Ballyholme Primary, we are aiming to:

  • Ensure that the key elements of mathematics; Number, Measures, Handling Data and Shape & Space are provided for across the curriculum.
  • Enable teachers to have a central role by undertaking robust tracking and monitoring of pupils’ work with a particular focus on identifying and addressing under achievements in maths.
  • Provide opportunities for teachers, in conjunction with the maths co-ordinators to share and learn from a good practice.
  • Provide an effective means for assessing pupil progress that will inform teaching and learning.
  • Promote policy of early intervention to address actual or potential under achievement.
  • Foster links with parents, families and communities to help them support their children.

  1. Responding to Data Analysis

  • Use the information from P1 baseline assessment to inform planning.
  • Use the Numeracy progress Test P2.
  • NFER testing P3-7 in September.
  • Analysis of data: end of September, including dissemination to previous year groups.
  • Priorities identified and addressed.
