ACME response to Primary Mathematics Review

17 June 2008

In response to the publication of Sir Peter William's report on primary mathematics, Professor Adrian Smith, Chair of the Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME), said:

"We fully support Sir Peter's recommendation for a maths specialist in every primary school. There is a real need for a larger pool of knowledgeable and enthusiastic teachers of the subject at this level, with the freedom to support the teaching of maths in their schools.  The report rightly identifies the pressing need to provide professional development to develop and improve good teaching of maths in primary schools.

"To deliver these measures it is vital that primary schools receive the required resources and that specialist maths teachers are given appropriate incentives to take on extra responsibilities."
