  • "Pupils find Maths Makes Sense inspiring and are able to approach mathematical concepts with a greater understanding. Parents are delighted with the progress of their children and appreciate the consistent approach the school takes. Teachers are able to understand and teach maths more successfully at a basic level which has enabled them to implement more complex mathematics with the children."
