Springboard is a catch-up programme for children in Years 3, 4, 5 , 6 and 7. The materials focus on key areas of number. They provide additional tuition for small groups of children outside the daily mathematics lesson (DML) during the weeks when these areas are being taught in the daily mathematics lesson .
- to support the identified children and to remedy particular weaknesses in number so that they are in a better position to access and benefit from the teaching programme in their Year and beyond;
- to set the expectation that these children catch up with their peers;
- to help teachers prepare a teaching programme enabling children to benefit fully from the main teaching programme for their Year as soon as possible.
