An independent, randomised controlled trial showed that pupils learning with Mathematics Mastery for one year made an average of two months’ additional progress in Key Stage 1.

The additional progress doesn’t come at the expense of pupil happiness. 98% of leaders at partner schools told us their pupils enjoyed the lessons in the curriculum, while 96% of leaders said that the programme has deepened understanding of mathematical concepts. Schools have found there are benefits to teaching more complex maths through Mathematics Mastery: “Pupils enjoy the opportunities to be challenged. They often choose the more difficult mathematical problems from those they are asked to solve.”- quoted from Shacklewell Primary School Ofsted Report, rated Outstanding 2019.
It isn't just school leaders noticing improvements – 97% of maths leads stated the programme is having a positive impact on pupil progress. 81% of them went further and said that the programme has deepened their pupils’ understanding of the subject.

Considering there are 951 lessons in the programme covering Reception to Year 6, we were glad to see that 86% of maths leads felt well-equipped to teach with it. Teachers using the curriculum can access training both online and in-person to help them use it effectively and develop their professional skills.
The 83 primary schools that took part in the research trial were in good company. They joined hundreds of others across the country.
