At Christ Church Primary School, we use Power Maths as a basis of our math’s lessons. This is an exciting mastery approach that works for every child.

It has been recommended by the Department of Education, DFE, to ensure that the aims, of the National Curriculum are achieved. 

At the heart of Power Maths is the belief that all children can achieve. It rejects the idea that people simply ‘can’t do’ maths. It is built on a growth mindset and problem-solving approach.

The aims of Power Maths
