    DescriptionSince the late 1990s the Government has had a specific strategy aimed at improving performance in primary mathematics which, along with its strategy to improve primary literacy, cost GBP 207 million to implement in 2007-08. In 2007, the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) commissioned Sir Peter Williams to undertake an independent review of the quality of primary mathematics teaching and his report was published in June 2008. This report evaluates, in particular: raising attainment and progress in mathematics and narrowing achievement gaps between certain pupils and their peers; and the delivery and effectiveness of the Primary National Strategy's resources and interventions and their impact on pupil and school performance. It was found that by bringing greater structure and consistency to the way primary mathematics is taught, the Strategy initially helped to improve test results at Key Stage 2. Since 2000 however, attainment has levelled off. It is too early to tell if the 2007 revisions to the Strategy will deliver the step change required. The report makes recommendations on this basis.
