    Increasing Children’s confidence in Maths

Welcome to Maths On the Move.

In primary schools where maths results are below the national average, there is an obvious temptation to spend the Pupil Premium Fund on addressing the issue. And ensuring the continued development of gifted and talented pupils raises further challenges.

Direct Sports Pro ‘close the gap’ by delivering Maths on the Move, developed by teachers for teachers. It is a unique and innovative programme that uses the concept of active learning to enhance children’s confidence and attainment in maths.

The programme is suitable for all abilities and can be tailored to suit the individual requirements of your school.

Gifted and talented children benefit from booster sessions to reach the highest grades, while lower achieving pupils can improve their mathematical skills and confidence, benefiting from an alternative learning environment that’s proven to increase both confidence and ability.

Many schools have found that Maths on the Move is a great way to utilise the Pupil Premium or the Primary PE and School Sports Premium.

As well as providing experienced educators and learning materials, Direct Sports Pro also ensures every pupil receives a termly progress report.

This means you can track and monitor the quality of the programme as well as your pupils’ progress, which gives you invaluable evidence to justify and demonstrate your premium spends when Ofsted visit your school.
