Abstract

In recent years, drawing on successful models of mathematics teaching in jurisdictions such as Shanghai and Singapore, mastery teaching in mathematics has become commonplace in England, yet there has been little research into the effectiveness of this method for students in English schools. Moreover, there is no research into its appropriateness for pupils with special educational needs. This paper outlines a case study carried out in one primary special school in outer London and discusses the approach taken by the school which had implemented a mastery teaching approach to mathematics. It examines the features of mastery teaching, the challenges faced by pupils with moderate learning difficulties and the adaptations needed in order to make the programme successful. This school found that adopting a mastery approach had a positive effect on teaching and learning in mathematics.
