(Cue the carefully crafted Remember Its and QLAs for Y1 - 6!)
Carefully designed tests for each term. Questions have been written to, not only establish what children have learnt, but also the format of questions that require the most practise/support. (For example, 'convince me' and empty box questions.)
This spread sheet will give you the ability to easily see where your children are (collectively, and individually) in need of more input - for both the content and the types of questions asked.

Leaders are establishing a mastery approach to mathematics. Consequently, pupils are presented with more opportunities to problem solve and explain their reasoning and working out. This is evident in their work, where pupils' grappling with difficult questions is visible.
This approach is helping pupils to develop a more sophisticated conceptual understanding so that they mathematical learning is built on a more solid foundation
You have tackled successfully the recommendation from the previous inspection to improve outcomes for pupils in mathematics. You provided a range of training and professional development for staff to extend their skills and develop effective practice. Pupils, especially the most able, are now fully challenged in their learning and making faster progress
The school's focus on developing mathematics is largely effective and having a positive impact on pupils' progress.
In mathematics, pupils are experiencing greater opportunities than found previously to demonstrate their reasoning and problem-solving skills. They have time to apply these skills in new ways in mathematics."
