I had been mathematics subject leader for a couple of years and successfully led improvements within the school. Teachers had been relatively receptive to change but there was still a degree of negativity from the pupils towards mathematics. This was more noticeable in some year groups than others. I managed to get teachers to agree to carry out a pupil perception questionnaire to help us decide on next steps. The main findings were linked to how interesting the pupils found the lessons and the fact that they felt the teacher did not really talk to them about their maths learning. As a result we agreed to further develop guided work to ensure all pupils get focussed teaching and we are exploring more cross curricular links with mathematics to make the contexts more relevant.
