DfE Funding for Maths Mastery: Start Claiming Now

What DfE funding is available, and how do I claim it?

Through its Teaching for Mastery Textbooks Subsidy, the Department for Education is providing eligible schools with funding to invest in maths mastery resources for KS1 and KS2. With this subsidy, 80% of the cost of approved resources is covered.

Are you an eligible school? Don’t wait to claim your funding — the submission deadline is 11 February!

If your school is eligible, the DfE will have already contacted you and asked you to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). If you think you’ve missed out on earlier funding rounds, get in touch with the DfE right away — there’s a good chance they’ll still be able to include you!

The EOI you send to the DfE needs to contain a resource cost estimate, and the DfE advises that you base your estimate on a quote obtained from an approved provider, like Maths — No Problem!

Can I buy Maths — No Problem! resources with this funding?

Yes. Maths — No Problem! resources have been approved by the DfE. In addition, Maths — No Problem! is offering a special discount on its school bundle price to eligible schools. So not only will the DfE cover 80% of the cost, but the price of our school bundle has additional discounts only available to eligible schools.

Why Maths — No Problem! is recommended by the DfE

The use of well-designed and tested textbooks is critical for successful implementation of teaching maths for mastery. A good textbook is both a lesson-planning tool for teachers, and a support for learners during lessons and individual work.

  • Clear and uncluttered textbook design brings learners’ attention to key concepts
  • Maths is represented formally and correctly
  • Textbooks support both formative and summative assessment — helping children and teachers measure progress
