Project Summary: Maths Mastery through progression in Calculation

Impact Evaluation: We have pushed back the training date to 5th June because we wanted to give schools the best opportunities to take part and away from SATs. We have decided that our baseline data collection will happen at the training as we can ensure we achieve a 100% return rate for minimum administration. Schools will then have the following 6 weeks to implement what they have learnt. We will then conduct Questionnaire 1 at the end of the summer term.  We have decided to let the schools themselves apply for the monitoring visits / half day support.  We are expecting them to apply for this in the days following the training session.  For now we’re working on getting firm commitments from schools to engage in the project. Questionnaire 2 is likely to be circulated after half term in the Autumn Term. We originally stipulated that the project will last for 6 months from the initial training day. We will therefore be able to report back on the project’s achievements just before Christmas.
