We use the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) approach to create a deep understanding of maths skills through building on existing knowledge and concentrating efforts on developing a focused number of key skills. We then owe a great deal to our own assessment-proficiency concept.
Children are encouraged to explain their reasoning, question things they don’t understand or agree with, and present their views in a structured and logical way. The subject really comes alive when they can externalise their thinking in this way and work collaboratively to apply those key skills creatively to real-life problems.

To access the thousands of digitised lessons we use a system called Miro. Miro is a content-sharing platform that lets teachers make, edit, share and distribute lessons to pupils!
What am I learning? How does it relate to what I learnt last year and to what I'm going to learn next year? Our learning pathways graphically set out the whole subject curriculum and bring the learning journey to life for every learner, in each year.
For every lesson in every subject, the Lion Pathways Curriculum provides end-of-topic or end-of-module assessment sheets; we use these to capture both pupil and teacher feedback for that piece of work. By actively tracking each learner’s views in a consistent and systematic way, it ensures their voice is heard and recorded, a core part of every element of the teaching and learning cycle.
