Tailored consultancy support to develop mathematical problem-solving in real-life contexts.
With the arrival of ‘assessment without levels’, ten schools could potentially be working with ten different assessment / tracking programmes. EW Ltd is fully aware of this, and has worked / is working with schools to ensure that whatever is being used is a fair reflection of each child’s mathematical ability.
EW Ltd can offer schools support in the classroom, book sampling (including pupil voice), 1:1 review and future planning sessions with teaching staff and data scrutiny with the Mathematics Subject Leader / SLT.
In the area of ‘book sampling’, results could be recorded as a ‘rolling record’ – identifying strengths and any areas for development, which will be ‘picked up’ in the next monitoring session.
Book sampling with the children is a good way to get their views on their own progress, but also outlines whether the Marking and Feedback comments that are written in their books genuinely move the children on. Is marking manageable, meaningful and making a difference? It identifies their own views on their strengths and areas for development, and – in the light of the current mathematics curriculum – allows an opportunity to assess their fluency with mathematics.
