I have felt for a long time that one of the disadvantages of the current levelling system is that it encourages teachers to constantly teach students mathematical concepts and ideas only at levels equal to or above that which they have recently scored on an assessment.  The data-focused, level-centric system only rewards teachers if their students can  score marks on higher-level content; there is no explicit incentive for filling gaps in students’ knowledge at lower levels.

Good maths teachers know the importance of their students having a strong knowledge in the foundations of the subject and the long-term benefit of plugging any gaps students have. This year I wanted to be much more systematic in identifying any key gaps students had in their knowledge of the foundations of secondary maths as soon as possible when they arrived in year 7.

We diagnostically tested every year 7 student in three areas: mental numeracy calculation strategies, timestables and key nodes. For each student, we assessed 30 mental calculation strategies such as: number bonds, reversing an addition sum to make it easier and counting from the smallest number to the largest in subtraction etc. We assessed 30 of the timestables.  The top 30 key nodes topics identified from my previous work on understanding the most important topics for students to master prior to studying GCSE maths were also assessed. In total we collected 90 data points for each of 203 year 7 students shortly after they arrived with us in September 2014.

NAPLAN tests the sorts of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life, such as reading, writing, spelling, grammar and numeracy. It is important to remember that NAPLAN is not about passing or failing, but about assessing learning progress.

The test window for NAPLAN Online is extended from three days provided for the paper test to nine days to give schools more flexibility in scheduling.

Numeracy Ninjas is a free Key Stage 3 numeracy intervention designed to fill gaps in students’ basic mental calculation strategies and also to empower them with the numeracy skills and fluency required to fully access GCSE Maths concepts when they move to Key Stage 4 study.

Furthermore, through growth mindsets and the promotion of regular practice, we want to ensure students’ perception of maths is positive and one in which they take pride and enjoyment.

Numeracy Ninjas is a project driven by the belief that all students can leave school functionally numerate. We aim to put the right resources into the hands of talented maths teachers, completely for free, in order to make this happen.
