On Track Maths

Ensure all children stay on track in maths with targeted intervention

On Track Maths is an intervention resource that enables teachers to improve gaps in children's knowledge with structured short sessions over the course of a week targeted at different mathematical strands. Intended for use with small groups or individual children, it includes a comprehensive range of activities that can be used to consolidate children's learning, providing a firmer foundation for progress.

  • Implement effective identification of weaker areas of maths

  • Use intervention activities to target specific problems and raise attainment

  • Assess impact of the intervention through an assessment lesson for each strand.

The On Track Maths concept

"Children can experience obstacles to learning caused by a lack of understanding of fundamental concepts. For example, a child in Year 5 may experience serious difficulties with large numbers because their understanding of basic place value was not secure when they were taught it many years before. On Track Maths provides teachers with the tools that they need to identify what a child can do and understand, and then go back to the relevant curriculum year’s knowledge to plug the gaps and put them back on track." Eleanor Hick, On Track Maths author"


Deliver effective maths interventions

Progress in Understanding Mathematics Assessment (PUMA) is a suite of termly standardised maths tests that enable schools to track progress, predict future performance and benchmark against national averages. Find out more about PUMA.

Using On Track Maths we have developed intervention grids for each PUMA test. These enable you to identify appropriate individual or small group intervention activities for the areas of weakness indicated in your pupils' test results. There are two types of interventions following each test: strand level intervention and area of learning intervention.

“Our TA has found On Track Maths really easy to use. I like how you can adapt the lessons to match your children’s ability. We do "mini maths" (a bit like phonics daily) so they are short easy tasks we can use.” Jo Turner, Colne Park Primary School in Lancashire.
