St Thomas Church of England primary, Blackburn, has been appointed as an Inspire Maths Advocate School as a result of demonstrating good teaching and learning of the Singapore approach in 2016/17.
Liam Noon (Assistant Headteacher and Mathematics Lead) and Judith Myhill (Numbers Count Teacher and Mathematics Lead) said;
“Inspire Maths has had a huge impact on our whole school approach to mathematics. We feel that we are now addressing the three main national curriculum aims through a more structured and connected programme. Through the professional development that we have received and the detailed teacher guides, our teachers have developed a deeper understanding of how children become successful mathematicians. By implementing Inspire Maths across our school it has brought a new found vibrancy towards the teaching and learning of mathematics.”
We are delighted to announce that we have been chosen to be an advocate school for INSPIRE maths. We are excited about the journey that we are on and look forward to the future
