Wakefield Pupil Referral Units

New beginnings, Brighter futures


When pupils arrive at The Priory Centre they are assessed in maths to ensure our lessons provide new knowledge and skills, alongside identifying and then closing any gaps in their learning. Our focus is on teaching the objectives from the National Curriculum. We employ the maths mastery approach which scaffolds our pupils learning to move from using concrete maths resources and practical equipment to picture representations and then on to tackling abstract number problems independently. Our personalised maths lessons aim to deepen children’s understanding, build fluency, accelerate their progress, and support children to find the most efficient ways of calculating and solving maths challenges.
