Power Maths

At St John's Primary School, we use Power Maths - an exciting mastery approach - for our maths lessons.

It has been recommended by the Department of Education, DFE, to ensure that the aims, of the National Curriculum are achieved. 

At the heart of Power Maths is the belief that all children can achieve. It rejects the idea that people simply ‘can’t do’ maths. It is built on a growth mindset and problem-solving approach.
