Ark schools have a special focus on mathematics and we invest to attract and train the best teachers. At Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy we teach a distinctive, world-leading maths curriculum (Mathematics Mastery). Our aim is to ensure that every child achieves mastery of mathematics concepts, computational skills, problem solving and application of mathematics to daily life activities. Children learn drawing strategies to solve complex problems and build strong links between objects, pictures, and abstract numbers. We teach mathematics topics in depth, so children understand the “how” as well as the “why”.
