Please see our new maths page that has been added to the Curriculum tab. This will tell you more information about our maths approach here at Portishead Primary School and includes a link to the school Calculation Policy.

This week some of our staff (including myself) have watched teachers from Shanghai teaching model mastery maths lessons on a visit to the Teaching School at St Peter's. It was fantastic to see the approaches we are developing here at PPS being modelled so expertly from teachers where this approach has been developed and is so effective.

We are very lucky to be part of the Boolean Maths Hub, through which the maths team, a teacher in each phase of KS2 and myself have been attending training sessions to embed the mastery approach to mathematics which is a key strand in our School Development Plan.

Use your browser to find out more information about the Boolean Maths Hub and the fantastic maths learning they deliver. We are very proud to be part of this and have our staff taking part in teacher research groups (TRGs).

A big thank you to Mrs Ratajczak who is key to this work alongside Mrs Rowswell, Mrs Perry. 

We are delivery an evening of maths support for parents on February the 13th. Please come along to the school hall for 6.30pm.

Mr Riordan
