Mastery Flow Model

The Mastery Flow Model is a process in which learners progress from new content to deep understanding. We use this specific model for teaching and learning within maths at St James the Great.

We define deep understanding as:

  1. Pupil’s long term retention.

  2. Pupil’s ability to apply learning in a variety of context including unfamiliar context.

  3. It is about pupils knowing what they know.

Our remarkable Science Curriculum in action...

We had a great time celebrating Number Day and together we raised £375 for the NSPCC! We would like to thank all of the children and their families for their generous donations to such an important cause!

The children had a lovely day exploring Maths through challenges, puzzles and games! All of the children completed Buddy's Special Challenge. They solved the puzzles to find the pieces of the key and unlock Buddy's hiding spot.
