Loughton School


Loughton School currently teaches mathematics in years 3, 4 and 5 in mixed ability classes using a ‘mastery’ approach.  Year 6 maths is currently taught in ability sets.  We have additional small booster groups in each year group of no more than 8 children who require the curriculum to be taught at a slower pace than their peers.
