This video resource from Teachers TV looks at Greenside primary school in Tameside, which has succeeded in improving mathematics School Attainment Target (SAT) results over the past year by introducing a whole school approach to the subject. Teachers now include mathematics across the school day with daily mental and oral starters, mathematics assemblies, and giant counting games in the playground. Different speaking and listening strategies have also contributed to the rise in SAT results.

The new approach follows advice from HM Inspectors that improving progression in mathematics should be a priority after the school failed to meet the national targets. Teachers and the Senior Leadership team talk about the challenges faced throughout the implementation of the framework and the benefits of working in a more flexible, cross-curricular way with the subject.
