Our approach

Ark Curriculum Plus pioneered the mastery approach – one that gives pupils a deep and conceptual understanding of subjects. Our work in the UK led to the Department for Education’s adoption of a mastery approach to teaching mathematics.

Already, primary schools across the country use our core principles. Our programme is the natural next step in developing teaching expertise and improving learning outcomes in your school. 

Helen Drury, Director of Curriculum Programmes, recently contributed to a TES article which asked, ‘What is maths mastery, anyway?’. Learn more about the research foundation of our Mathematics Mastery curriculum and PD programme.

We have made it easy to for you to utilise our Mathematics Mastery programme. Not only is it built in-line with national primary education principles, but it is also fully flexible. You can gain the level of support that will benefit teaching and individuals the most.
