Mathematics is essential to everyday life. We believe a high quality mathematics education provides a foundation for understanding the world around us, allowing us to make links to other curriculum areas as much as possible. We encourage our pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics; reasoning mathematically and solving problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of situations. Essentially, we want our pupils to develop a sense of enjoyment and curiosity for the subject.
The school follows the national framework for Mathematics with statutory assessments taking place at the end of Key Stage 1 and 2. We supplement this with White Rose Maths planning, plus additional resources as necessary - Nrich/ Deepening Understanding/ Target your Maths for example. We use a mastery approach to teaching maths in conjunction with our local maths hub (NNW). The use of concrete apparatus is actively encouraged throughout the school.
