Thirteen primary schools in west Suffolk have been awarded the cash from Raising the Bar’s Challenge Fund to drive improvements in maths teaching.

Headteachers with their specialist maths teachers will be visiting schools in Hackney where they will undergo rigorous training over the next two terms.

They will be rolling out the approach to all Suffolk primary schools that wish to take part.

The Challenge Fund has been set up to encourage schools to develop their own innovative approaches to raising standards of education in Suffolk.

Anna Richards, headteacher of Ixworth Primary School, which is one of the schools involved, said the project has the potential to “transform standards in maths in Suffolk schools”. “We have seen how well it has worked in London and we are determined that our pupils have access to the best maths teaching,” she said.
