Schools can be confident that they will receive support that is tailored to their needs and will have an impact on the children and families within their community. We have many years of experience as consultants and understand the need to liaise closely with schools to ensure that practice can be developed effectively whilst understanding the challenges that face practitioners on a daily basis.

The team at First4Maths gain the trust and respect of the teachers that they work with by setting out clear expectations for changes needed, the rationale for those changes and how they will result in improvements in the standards and delivery of mathematics. All members within our team offer the opportunity to plan and teach alongside teachers within our schools to model how our training can be delivered within their own classroom.
