To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps the Government is taking to improve the quality of maths teaching in primary schools.
6 February 2017
The government is committed to raising standards in primary mathematics teaching.
We have established Maths Hubs - 35 school-led centres of excellence with a role in leading transformation of teaching based on best practice internationally. We are investing £41m to enable primary schools to introduce highly effective south-east Asian mastery teaching methods.
We are also investing in primary mathematics initial teacher training (ITT) courses, to allow trainee primary teachers to specialise in the subject.
