PA Maths Membership
The Primary Advantage Maths Programme is designed to support school leaders in building upon good practice in their schools to ensure maths teaching and learning is of the highest quality and all children make good progress. The PA package was developed by a group of practising teachers from the PA federation and is rooted in current research based practice in mathematics teaching and learning. It aims to develop children's conceptual understanding and skills proficiency and is underpinned by a strong commitment to problem solving, reasoning and fluency. By engaging with the PA Maths Programme, teachers are demonstrating a commitment to sharing the values that underpin it, namely the belief that primary mathematics is a crucial phase in laying the foundations for lifelong numeracy skills. This drives the focus on conceptual understanding, skills proficiency, problem solving, reasoning and fluency which comprise the PA Maths Programme. Through sharing our experiences with the wider primary community through offering membership of the PA Maths Programme to all primary schools, we hope to make a positive contribution towards maths teaching and learning.
