Maths Recovery


Mata, the Maths Recovery Programme is one of the key actions to improve numeracy outcomes.

home1Maths Recovery offers a unique approach to extending children’s number knowledge, understanding, and strategies. The programme offers an extremely detailed profiles-based assessment of pupils in respect of these areas and provides a framework for individual, group, or class-based instruction which is suitable not only for pupils who are experiencing difficulties but also for average and more able children.


Mata, the Maths Recovery Programme, is being rolled out extensively as part of the Department of Education & Science DEIS initiatives (Delivering Equality of Opportunity in Schools) as one of the key actions to improve numeracy outcomes. Maths Recovery specialists and classroom teachers in the relevant schools will be trained in the principles and practices of Maths Recovery.

The Programme is based in Clare Education Centre.
