    How does it work?

  • Success@Arithmetic: Calculation trains a lead teacher and a teaching assistant who work together to raise pupils attainment and develop their understanding, fluency and confidence in written calculation.
  • The lead teacher conducts a diagnostic assessment and selects a series of Success@Arithmetic steps to form a tailored programme that the teaching assistant delivers to an intervention group of up to three pupils.
  • The sessions use number rods, bar modelling and written methods to build a complete mathematical picture, developing pupils arithmetic fluency. They can be adapted to meet individual needs.
  • The cost of this training is £490 + £325 fee payable to Edge Hill for registration and resources (£815 in total). This charge covers the Lead Teacher and one teaching assistant. One additional teaching assistant will cost an extra £200. The box of resources can be shared by two teaching assistants; an additional set of resources can be purchased if required.
